Hello again.  Hope your Monday is going well.  Today’s card is a get well card using a combination of both the Joseph’s coat technique as well as th emerging color technique.  There are great tutorials here at Splitcoaststampers for each of these.

I really enjoyed getting inky this weekend.  I am definitely going to play with this technique again.

  • First I laid down color on the craft mat.  Barn Door, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans, in that order.
  • Then I took the stamp Leafy Glade from Stampin Up.  I stamped it into the color, then picked the stamp back up again and stamped it into the color again, just a little lower than the last time.  I then did this once more but this time placing the stamp down higher in the color slightly.  This blends the colors slightly.
  •  Then I spritzed the stamps slightly with water and stamped it onto white cardstock.
  •  I then placed the Stampin Up stamp Definitely Decorative Daisy (the fill in stamp) into versamark ink and stamped it onto the Leafy Glade stamped image.
  • I embossed the flowers with clear embossing powder and heat set it.
  •   I then used the Black Soot ink pad and rubbed it over the entire thing.  When it was completely filled I used a damp paper towel to remove the black from the embossed flowers.
  • I then used to Labels 8 die to cut out  a portion of the sheet and mounted it on red card stock cut by hand using the outside edge of the Labels 8 die.  I tied Offray top stitch orange ribbon  into a bow.  I used a Stampin’ up punch and stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up- Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  I then mounted this all onto a white card that I embossed with my polka dot cuttlebug embossing folder.

I love that the embossing almost makes the flowers look dewy.

Thank you for looking.
