Well, I didn't get all my cards mailed in time, so some of you will receive them today. Hand delivered. Today's card is a technique called Joseph's Coat. I got my inspiration from Pinterest, just do a search - Stampin' Up Josephs Coat. I didn't link anybody specific, because I had looked at so many in the process.
For the background you need to sponge with Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Dapper Denim, & Wisteria Wonder.
You need to be very generous when adding color to the background. You want it to be very vibrant.
Then stamp the background with Versa Mark Ink. Now I had a little mistake while stamping. I accidentally stamped in the watermelon Wonder instead of Versa Mark.(that's what happens when you have a ton of inks of on your desk at the same time.) So...I went with it. Stamp 3 times with Versa Mark, stamp once in Watermelon Wonder then into Versa Mark. Clean stamp & repeat. Now you can add embossing powder. Then take the new sponge brayer & Early Espresso & cover the entire piece. Use the brayer in both directions so you don't get any lines. Everything under the embossing will pop thru.
Die cut one leaf from Dapper Denim & out of the middle of Crushed Curry stamp & emboss the leaf with Watermelon Wonder & die cut it out. You will be covering up what you cut out so your not going to see it, & you are saving paper.
Hope you enjoyed my version of the Josephs Coat technique.
Have a great Turkey Day!
