Joseph's Coat

Joseph's Coat

Hi There!

Thought it might be fun to
re-visit an old technique ....
...... very old.......I remember
doing this in Primary School!

Here's Helen Chilton to start
us off..............

"Rub the Distress inks onto a panel of glossy card.

Stencil the mosaic pattern over the top 
with VersaMark...

... and then emboss in clear

Rub over a dark coloured inkpad - 
I used Black Soot.

Buff over with a cloth to remove ink 
from embossing.

 I don't think I let the ink 'cure' for long enough 
as it came out quite pale so I ....

....then rubbed over with Chipped Sapphire 
and left it for a bit longer.

Rub some Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin 
onto a small piece of glossy.

Lay over and clear emboss the fish fossil

Rub over blue and black until black and blue(!) 
and then buff up.

I then added some definition with a black pen
 as it was annoying me!

Add more black pen to the background and
 layer up on card. I added some messy ribbon 
and fibres - I like a bit of a mess!"

Materials used:

Lovely bright start to the week
Helen, thank you very much.

Just when you think you have all
the layering stencils you will ever
need; somebody uses one you haven't
got!   Always the way

'Till tomorrow

  1. Brilliant! Really has a ceramic effect. Xx

  2. Stunning idea for a background for the fossil fish. Those fossil fish are in my top ten favourite stamps and I love seeing them used in new ways. Love this!
