Joseph's Coat

Once a month my Stampin' Up upline holds a team meeting during which we go over all things Stampin' Up and share our successes as well as struggles with our Stampin' Up businesses during the past month.

Each month one member is assigned the task of teaching a technique make-n-take. It was my turn during the month of August and I taught the Joseph's Coat technique as shown on this card. Joseph's Coat is done as follows:

1. Choose 3 colors of Stampin' Up inks. For this card I used Creamy Caramel, Pumpkin Pie and Always Artichoke. These colors are streaked onto a piece of Glossy White eventually covering the entire piece of paper, but trying not to muddy your colors.

2. After the base coat of colors is dry, stamp a solid image with Versamark and then clear emboss it. I used the leaves from Kind & Caring Thoughts.

3. After your embossing is cooled use a brayer to cover your color streaked Glossy White with a darker color. I used Chocolate Chip.

4. Allow the brayered color to dry and then use a soft cloth to buff off the color from the embossed areas. This will allow your base colors to peek through.

5. Complete your card as you wish.

Hope you try your own creation using the Joseph's Coat technique and let me see what you have done.

See you soon.
