When I saw this technique I knew I just had to try it, and I'm so glad I did! This technique is called the Joseph's Technique, named after Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
As you can see from the colors of the dragonfly from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set, the look like the colors from Joseph's Dreamcoat.
To get the look, you would first blot ink onto Whisper White cardstock using a sponge.
You can use which ever colors you want, and you can fill the paper or leave some un-inked - the choices are endless and all yours to make.
Once you've inked the paper, use the heat tool to dry the ink. Then use your Embossing Buddy all over the paper. Stamp the dragonfly using Versamark, then heat to finish off the embossing.
Now for the magic... using the Sponge Brayer and the Basic Black Archival ink pad, cover the entire piece of paper with ink. Just keep inking the sponge then sponging the paper. It will eventually look like this.
Use a tissue to wipe any remaining ink from the embossed dragonflies. Remember to wash your hands when you are done to avoid any smudges when you assemble the card.
I hope you liked this card. Please leave a comment below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!".
Thanks again for stopping by. Have a great day, and Happy Stampin'!
