Sunday Stamping Challenge: Black & White

Hi dear readers !

Here's my stamping for last week's challenge on Adventures in Stamping !
The theme whas Black & White and I must admit I wasn't very inspired this time ... I voted for the "straight lines" challenge as I had an idea for it ! But yesterday, I wanted to try something with a design from Bundle Monster plate bm203 and I'm glad I did, I love the result :)


I used Essence Black Out for the base. I wanted to use it especially for the satin finish (what they call soft touch on their sticker), but finally I didn't like the satin look with the stamp on it, so I added one coat of Seche Vite, and I prefer it this way :)

Anyway, Black Out on his own is very pretty if you love the not-really-matte look.

I used bm203 and Konad special polish in white for the stamping.

I bought my white Konad polish 10 years ago and it's still perfect, and I never had to use thinner for it, can you believe it ? Compared to it, my 2 years old black Konad imitation is almost dead, it became too thick to do anything with it and I messed my recent black stampings ...
So, you can go with a classic polishes or imitations, but Konad shades are really worth it :)

I hope you like today's post :)

Have a nice day ^^
