Phil 4:8- Think About Such Things
I had fun stamping this past weekend and I decided to try an older technique, Joseph’s Coat (see the Splitcoaststamperstutorial here) for a few cards – what a fun technique!
I had tried the Joseph’s Coat Technique a few years ago and I wanted to create a fairly Clean and Simple (CAS) card so I decided to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers’ SC62 Sketch Challenge along with the CAS377 “Groovy Elements”, the Mix-Ability MIX162 “Time for the Primaries” and the USEIT2016 Challenges (the retired Fresh Vintage image has not seen ink in years :-)).
If you have not had a chance to visit the above Splitcoaststampers’ galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous cards and inspiration from all!!
Use Sponge Daubers, apply Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Rose Red Classic Ink to a piece of Glossy White cardstock, blending the colors but leaving some of the true color as well.
Once the ink as dried, de-static with an Embossing Buddy® and stamp the medallion image from Fresh Vintage (retired SAB set) over the background (I tried to avoid overlapping but it was difficult :-)).
Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder , heat set with the Heat Tool and allow the embossed images to cool.
Once cooled, use a Sponge Dauber (versus a brayer as in the tutorial) to apply Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink over the images, applying multiple coats to achieve the darkness you desire.
Wipe off the excess ink with a paper towel and trim a piece to create the panel on the card.
Fold a piece of Extra Thick Whisper White cardstock in half (I used a 4 ¼” x 11” piece scored at 5 ½” and ended up trimming the final card to 3 ¾” x 5 ¼” to fit an envelope I had on hand).
Quick and easy and I had so much fun with this technique that I created a second card with a large background stamp- I will post that one later this evening :-).
