A new (favorite) technique !

For day 2 of the Spring Card Class 2022 with Kristina and Jennifer, I learned a new technique called Joseph’s Coat which is pretty cool. It when you create an inked up card panel, and then stencil over it in black ink. How cool is this!!

I created my rainbow background panel using inks from Your Next Stamp, Lawn Fawn and The Stamp Market. The star stencil I used was distressed stars from Plaid Crafts which I used with black Memento Ink. I heat embossed a sentiment from Stampin Up for the focal point and then just a few clear enamel dots.

This card was based on the Cathy Zielske example for the class. I’m pretty sure I’m going to chalk this up as a new favorite because it is just so easy and makes such an impact on your project. I love the effect!

Thanks for stopping by.

Cathy Z’s YouTube class tonight was using our exclusive stamp/die set with fun rainbows and clouds. I can’t believe I don’t own a rainbow set already!

My card is a bit of a variation on the one Cathy did but I love how it turned out. I again used some of the paper from the Heidi Swapp paper pack and ran it through a Darice cloud embossing folder. It was fun to cut out the pieces of the rainbow. The hearts came with the set as well which are a lovely little accent.
