Joseph's Coat

Stamper: Francine Ferrara

Stamp Credit: Hot Potatoes

Notes: This card is really unique because Francine sponged the background on with a rainbow ink pad rather than braying the ink on. I love the stippled effect.

Stamper: Christine Cox

Stamp credits: Iris from PSX, butterfly from Comotion

Notes: The iris is the Joseph's Coat technique. The butterfly was just stamped and embossed in gold, cut out and then brayed with Kaleidacolor's Calypso rainbow pad. The butterfly was mounted with foam tape for a 3-D effect.

Stamper: Christine Cox

Stamp credits: Stampington and Co.

Notes: I used Kaleidacolor's Royal Satin rainbow ink pad for the background.

Directions for Joseph's Coat:

A-2 size piece of glossy cardstock
Rubber Brayer
Clear Embossing ink
Black permanent dye ink * (I use Memories or Impress, they both give good coverage which is important for this technique)
Rainbow dye ink pad
Faith’s Little Miracle (or any other anti-static powder)
Heat Tool
Clear Embossing powder

Run brayer over rainbow ink pad and roll over cardstock. Get good coverage but don’t muddy the colors. Allow ink to dry thoroughly. Apply Faith’s Little Miracle. Stamp image using clear ink. Pour clear embossing powder over, dump and heat. When cool, cover card completely with black permanent ink. When completely dry, buff with a tissue to remove black ink from image.

* Note: This can be done with colors other than black for a different look. Some colors give a look like Russian Lacquer boxes.
