Joseph’s Coat is a technique that I tried many, many years ago which did not have a very good result. After receiving my Nature’s Print stamp set, I wanted to try it again and while there is still improvement for me to achieve this technique, I am pleased to be able to share the card with you today. The usual color to cover the card stock is black ink. As it didn’t work for me the first time I tried it with black ink, I decided to use Starry Sky classic ink and here is the result.
I started with a piece of Basic White card stock sized 5 1/4″ x 4″. Using my Blending Brushes, I applied splotches of Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide and Highland Heather over the panel. After the ink dried, I rubbed the Embossing Buddy over the panel then stamped the various images using Versamark all over. I sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder over the stamped images then heat embossed the images with the Heat Tool. The next step was to sponge Starry Sky classic ink over the panel. After covering it with the ink, I used a paper towel to remove the excess ink and thus exposing the beautiful colored images.
I trimmed the panel to a 4″ x 4″ size and layered it onto a panel of Fresh Freesia. I added strands of the pretty new 1/8″ Starry Sky Metallic Woven ribbon, stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments SAB stamp set and finished the card with some of the gorgeous new Glossy Dots.
- Starry Sky – Card Base 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″
- Fresh Freesia – 4 1/8″ x 5 1/8″
- Basic White – 4″ x 5 1/4″ (2), 1 trimmed to 4″ x 4″ for focal panel, other for inside of card
- Ribbon – 3 strands 5″
