Joseph's Coat Technique

I have been really pleased that Craft Stamper has been revisiting some old stamping techniques recently, and often adding a new modern twist to them. In the new April edition the masterclass is all about the 'Joseph's Coat' technique by Trish Latimer. I remember trying this out years ago when I was fairly new to stamping, and back in the days when I had never heard of a brayer! So when I saw Trish's article I thought I'd have a go... here are the results. On the first card I brayered Kaleidacolor creole spice ink onto glossy card, stamped and clear embossed the mosaic stamp, then brayered over with black dye ink. The second card is trying out Trish's idea of using a 'cuttled' piece - brayered glossy card with Kaleidacolor riviera, ran through the embossing folder, applied clear embossing ink carefully to the raised areas and embossed with clear ep. Black ink was then sponged over. I have to say that using a brayer makes everything much easier - quicker and cleaner!

Gorgeous cards, Angela. The first one is stunning, the colours relly pop.

I must try revisiting some of these techniques, it may just stir the old mojo. :o)
