joseph's coat technique with neat & tangled

You can called it "Joseph's Coat" or just plain ol' embossed resist but either way it is a fabulous stamping technique! 

And doesn't it look cute with dots?! In my opinion, everyone needs a good set of dot stamps like the new Neat & Tangled Circular set! :)
When I was a brand new stamper, this was one of the techniques that really blew my mind. How do you get rainbow colors on black?!?!
If you haven't tried it yet, here are the simple steps...

  • create a rainbow on white cardstock. I did a quick watercolor with Distress Oxides but you could ink blend or color with markers.
  • stamp dots from Neat & Tangled's Circular set onto the rainbow background with clear embossing ink and emboss with clear powder.
  • cover the entire panel with black ink and then use a barely damp cloth to remove ink from the embossed dots, letting the color show through.
Something to note...I used Black Soot Distress Oxide and since it is water-reactive, I sealed it with Distress Glaze AFTER I wiped off the embossed dots. Sealing with the glaze kept me from smearing black ink back onto my rainbow dots while finishing my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you head over to the Neat & Tangled blog to see more and learn about prizes!!!

Have a great day!
