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.
