YNS Challenge # 27

Happy Wednesday!!! I want to say wow on all the amazing creations on  your own flowers challenge, I could almost smell them! This week at Your Next Stamp Challenge blog we want to see some negativity! No not the evil, wicked, mean & nasty kind, we want nicely negative, in other words a white image stamped on dark card stock. Now lets just say you don't have a super powerful white pigment based white ink pad I did a few techniques of other supplies for substitutions: 

This technique is using an Embossing Ink with a White EP:*******************************

This technique is using an Embossing Ink with a clear Embossing Powder, and the brayering on black ink. You have to go over the image when done brayering with tissue to get excess ink off:

Finally this is white acrylic paint. You need to paint it out really thin on a plastic surface and then treat it like a stamp pad. Might I suggest you wash of your stamps right away. As long as it's not a foam pad if you are forced to let the paint dry onto your stamp with a little scrubbing it will come off:
There are many other alternatives as well use your imaginations!

Here is my card using Cute Witch Ellie her Kitty 

Your Next stamp offers 2 fabulous prizes for you to win:
1. Winner – one lucky winner, chosen by, will win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Winner Blinkie to proudly display on their blog!

2. Top Pick – one lucky entry, chosen by Karen, will win $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Top Pick Blinkie to proudly display on their blog! [NB You must use a YNS stamp on your creation to be eligible to win the Top Pick prize].

We’d love to see you use a YNS stamp on your challenge card/creation, but if you don’t have one, then you can still join in and be entered into the prize draw! As our challenge runs for 2 whole weeks you have plenty of time to hop on over to the YNS Store and pick up some of these cuties yourself! And if you do use a YNS stamp on your challenge card/creation, you’ll be entered into the prize draw TWICE and be entered into the Top Pick draw – that’s 3 chances to win!
So are you ready for some negativity? Bring it! Beth
