This technique is called Joseph's Coat. I'm sure many of you have heard of it and have played with it before. I HAVE JUST DISCOVERED IT AND I LOVE IT!!! The stamp set I used was Magnificent Maple from the Holiday Catalog. The colors of ink I used were Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green and Early Espresso. I also used the Expressions framelits and burlap ribbon from the Holiday Catalog.
To do this, I simply sponged Garden Green, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie completely covering a piece of Whisper White cardstock (4 x 5 1/4). Next I stamped with versamark the maple leaf and I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then took my brayer, inked it up with Early Espresso and rolled it over the cardstock until it was as dark as I could get it. I then took a paper towel and wiped away the ink that didn't adhere to the stamped image to reveal my BEAUTIFUL LEAVES!!! Isn't it amazing!!! On my second card I really inked the paper up good...so that the colors were deeper. Don't you just love this technique?!?! I can't wait to play some more!
You should give it a try!
I love that you visited my blog today! HAPPY STAMPING!!
