I wanted to show you a technique I’ve had on my list of things to do for awhile now. The technique is called Joseph’s coat. I found it on Jan Tink’s blog.
You start out with a piece of cardstock. Ink the background with a dark ink color. I used Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad. For my image I chose the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel.
Using Sponge Daubers, add a variety of colors. I chose Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, YoYo Yellow and Pretty In Pink. I swirled them in different spots, touching one color to another and not leaving any white spots. This is what your cardstock layer should look like:
Using your VersaMark ink pad, ink a large stamp image. I used the Medallion stamp. Once your stamp image is inked, apply to your cardstock.
Sprinkle clear embossing powder and use your heat gun to emboss. Using your brayer, ink your roller with any color ink you would like and roll across your cardstock. As you will notice in the picture below, I used Close to Cocoa ink. Once you start rolling your brayer across the cardstock, the embossed image will “resist” the ink. Using a slightly wet cloth or tissue, wipe across the embossed image to remove any residue.
I then layered my stamped layer to Whisper White cardstock and then layered again over Old Olive.
Embellish as you wish. Isn’t this a beautiful technique? What do you think? Give it a try!!
