Default Question for anyone who owns reverse prints hostess set?

I love this set and have recently got this.I played around with it a little bit.Then wasn't so sure I liked it after.
I guess my question here is how to really get more color in the center of the stamp so it shows up.rather than a white colored flower and a colored background.
do you stamp it first then color the flower in with pencils or crayons.
I really like this set an want to get more from this.since I now own the other sets to go with it.
Need all the help here and any suggestion on better ways to use this kind of stamp sets with the reverse rubber.

Try chalk in the center of the flowers. Gives a nice soft look.

My upline showed me a chalk tech that was awesome under this set and the natures secret set. Chalk UNDER the image first. Then stamp on top of the chalked area. It came out beautiful.

I don't own this set yet but I will probably get it with my stamp camp order I'm placing tomorrow (if I get enough sales to make L2). Anyway, this is whyI want it... I love this reverse resist technique described on the Hero Arts site. I think this would look awesome with this set!
Check it out.

Isn't it cooool. Definitely need a reverse style stamp though.

have you tried sponging some color where the flower is going to be on the CS and then embossing the image over it? or the other way around, emboss image then color in.

What about embossing the image in white? Then you could color the center image however you want.

reverse stamps look great when soot stamped on colored glossy paper. keep the soot unven in swirls and cloudy and then take off your reverse image. very cool effect!

or you can use plain white glossy paper but color in portions before taking it to the flame. sort of looks like a less labor-intensive joseph's coat technique. just be sure to seal it before handling it too much since the soot comes off very easily.

So that you don't get a white flower, just be sure that you don't stamp on plain white paper. Stamp on colored c.s. or brayer some color onto white c.s.. Make a piece of background to stamp on using polished stone, faux linen or some other technique. So, you can color in the image after you stamp, or stamp onto your colors! Good luck!
