How are you liking the Halloween card share so far? Today I am going to show you the “Joseph’s Coat” technique, with a bit of a twist.
The colors I have chosen to use today are: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit, and Whisper White. I am also using the same Designer Paper I used yesterday, from the Witches Brew Designer Series Paper pack.
First thing I did was measure my stamp so I could get the color effect I was looking for. I used a 1 inch strip of white, starfruit and pumpkin and taped them (on backside) together. Make sure they are butted up to each other very tight, with no gaps.
Next, ink up the Halloween greeting stamp from the “Halloween Hello” stamp set with VersaMark™ and stamp it over the multi-color strip of cardstock … then heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
Then, using black ink … ink up your brayer and roll it back and forth over the image until covered evenly. Take a paper towel and whip off excess ink from the embossed area … your greeting will “appear” but will have a “smudgy” look to it. I think it gives it a bit of a “spooky” look, which is perfect for this time of year.
I added the new Pumpkin Pie Chevron Ribbon (130015) to give the card a “pop” of color. To balance out the card I added 3 rhinestones colored with a black Sharpie … then put a pop of Starfruit behind them so they would stand out more.
I’ll be back … tomorrow with another Halloween themed project.
