Hello & Happy Monday Crafty Peeps!
We are on the last few days of August!!!
OMGOSH! Where has the Summer gone?
Of course you all know.. I'm super excited
for FALL to begin, so I'm totally over Summer! LOL
Today, I wanted to share a card I made using a
technique I just barely heard about - I'm sure some of you
have heard of this cool technique before - but not me!!! :)
It's called the Joseph's Coat Technique
I learned it from the group I'm in, over at
I joined this group a couple of months ago...
They teach all kinds of different techniques
and I thought.... WHY NOT?
It's only $9 a month and they have TONS of
Ideas & Techniques to show you... Some, I already knew
and tons more I didn't! I really get tired of having to search
a technique up on youtube... so I'm trying this place out
for now, since I can find all my info in one place... :)
**** (I DO NOT WORK for this GROUP) ****
I'm just letting you know where I get my info from... :)
Here's the Card I created using this Technique
I actually think it turned out pretty cool!

Here's how I created it --
I took a blank piece of White Cardstock and used the
assorted Distress inks and blended them up on my cardstock
to get the look I wanted - in this case colorful! :)
then I used my powder tool to add powder all over my colorful cardstock piece before I started to stamp - I took my cardstock & placed it in my Misti tool - then decided on my stamp placement - inked up my stamps with the versamark ink - then stamped on top of the blended cardstock - I did this 2x's to make sure I got the versa mark ink coverage I wanted - I then added some clear embossing powder and heated it up - You can tell it was complete when the clear embossing powder turned the words glossy looking - THEN the FUN part - I took the Black soot distress ink and covered the entire piece of cardstock in it - so now it's completely black - then I took a towel and wiped the black ink off - which gave me the cool effect you see on my card - The Embossing resisted the Black ink and now shows the cool mixture of distress inks I used underneath -
I then used my Stitched scallop frame to cut out what I wanted -
attached it to a pink card mat backing - added some dimension to it, so it could POP up on top of the Dotted dry Embossed background - attached it all to a Grey 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base - then added some Enamel dots for some extra fun!
If you've NEVER tried this technique - I encourage you to give it a shot! I thought it was interesting to say the least -
Thanks for reading ALL the way through my crazy long post!
Have a FABULOUS DAY!!!
