Winter Woods and Joseph's Coat technique - a case

I remember doing this technique for the first time when I went to a Demonstrator training session a number of years ago.  I loved  it then an I love it now.  I had forgotten about it until I saw a card made by.Kristi

On a Thick Very Vanilla card base I layered a 4 by 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla embossed with the Pinewood planks embossing folder.

The art piece consists of a 3 by 3 1/8" piece of Very Vanilla card stock matted with Pumpkin Pie (4 1/8 by 3 1/4")

On the art piece do the technique in the following way:
  • with a sponge for each color of Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight, apply each color randomly over the entire surface of the Very Vanilla art piece.  This is done as smoothly as possible without leaving any streak marks.
  • using Versa Mark, stamp the image of the trees from Winter Woods and emboss with clear embossing powder.
  • then sponge Early Espresso ink generously over the entire art piece
  • once done wipe the area with a paper towel to remove the ink over the embossed trees to reveal the brilliant Autumn colors (emboss resist).
  • mat the art piece with Pumpkin Pie card stock, wrap some braided twine  around the lower part and add it to the card front.
  • use an Early Espresso and Pumpkin pie markers color the sentiment from "Country Home" and add to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp two leaves from "Colorful Seasons" - one in Daffodil Delight and one in Pumpkin Pie.  Die cut using the coordinating framelits and add to the left end of the sentiment strip.  Make a bow with the  braided twine and add to stems of leaves.    

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Winter Woods, Country Home, Colorful Seasons
Inks:  Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, Versa Mark, SU markers (Early Espresso, Cajun Craze)
Papers:  Thick Very Vanilla, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie
