Here is number three for the summer challenge at Cornish Heritage Farms. This challenge had to involve some sort of resist technique, this is Joseph's Coat, a sort of emboss resist. The purple paper in the background does really match one of the purple tones in the flower, I just cannot get it right in the photo.
Directions are pretty simple. Take a piece of glossy cardstock, use a brayer and a kaleidacolor pad and makes some bands of color. Let it dry. Swipe it with that little bag that reminds me of the bags bowlers use on their hands . . . anti static or something. Then stamp your image with versamark and emboss with clear EP. Rub over the page with either a black craft ink (which I used) or you can use Brilliance black.
Let it dry for a good hour, then pat the black ink off of your embossed image. This was the tricky part. I think next time I try this I might use regular cardstock because the glossy paper resists the black ink too, and it is easy to rub off too much. Thanks for looking! Hope you had a good weekend!
