Tonight was my Technique Tuesday class.  Our first technique was the Joseph's Coat technique.  Traditionally, this technique is done with a Spectrum pad and Basic Black Classic Ink.  Since we no longer have the Spectrum pads, I sponged colors randomly instead.  I actually like it better this way and you can still sponge stripes if you like the stripes of color better.  Also, since it's the Autumn/Thanksgiving season, I chose to use Early Espresso instead of Black for more of a fall feel.  Technique directions follow the recipe.  Enjoy!

This is an alternate standard size version:

  • Stamp Sets – French Foliage (W #120845 $19.95, C #121166 $14.95), Day of Gratitude (W#120835 $26.95, C#121148 $18.95)
  • Card Stock – Glossy White, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, More Mustard
  • Ink – Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso Classic & Markers, VersaMark
  • Ribbon – Early Espresso 5/8" Grosgrain (#119955, $6.95)
  • Punches – 2" x 1-3/8" (Wide) Oval Punch (#119859, $16.95, Decorative Label (#120907, $16.95)
  • Accessories – Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430, $3.95)
  • Tools – Sponge Daubers, Brayer, Big Shot, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#119976, $7.95)

  1. Using a sponge dauber, sponge at least 3 colors of ink onto glossy card stock covering the entire piece.  You can also use spots to wiggle some ink on top.
  2. Allow to dry. Rub embossing buddy all over the surface of your CS. 
  3. Stamp images (bold stamps are more striking) on CS with VersaMark being careful not to overlap.  Sprinkle on clear embossing powder then heat emboss.
  4. Ink up your brayer in dark ink and brayer over the entire piece of CS.
  5. Buff off the excess ink with a paper towel.
