Baker's Dozen Card Event #4 Joseph's Coat Technique

Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set

The Joseph's Coat Technique is a fun technique that displays a silhouette of color against a dark background.  The base layer of this card received a healthy dose of splatter from a paint brush loaded with Memento Black Ink.  

Next the Emerald Envy card stock, layering the splattered base, was stamped with selections from the Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set in VersaMark to add some tone on tone interest.  The Joseph's Coat panel was blended with Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, and So Saffron in no particular order.  

I treated that layer with an Embossing Buddy and used the same stamps again in VersaMark, but this time, I used Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set the entire panel.

Now for the fun part!  I used a blending tool to cover the panel with Memento Black until the coverage was fairly dark and even.  Then, I used a clean cloth to wipe off any of the black ink that covered the embossed areas displaying the fun colorful pattern below.

'Thanks' was stamped on a Whisper White Project Life Label and, adding some dimension, adjacent to the sentiment, a layered medallion in the same colors used on the blended Joseph's panel was placed.  'Your're the Best' stamped at the the bottom of the card finished the project.

Everyone needs to give this technique a try.  Any darker color would have worked with the final top layered blending.  Elegant Eggplant or Red Rose or Basic Gray or...would have been fun options on this card too!
