White Negative Technique

As you might have seen in the post below, I am doing some challenges on the Two Peas stamping board for Septoberfest. I made this card by following a neat technique. It is called White Negative.

Stamp the Negative background on white card stock using a white pigment ink. It is important that you use clear embossing powder to emboss the image because you will be inking and stamping over the image and you want to be able to rub it off well on the embossed areas. I then inked the negative areas using a finger dauber and red distress ink. You will need to rub off the ink on the embossed areas using a tissue. I then stamped a music background over this ( use a pigment or dye ink, no permanent ink ) and then rubbed off the ink on the embossed areas again. I enjoyed working with this fun technique!
