And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Happy Day

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing two cards using some of the stamp sets from the SNSS April Release over on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog.  I was reminded of the Joseph's Coat Technique after watching a video on Jennifer McGuire's Blog and decided to try out some of her tips on my cards.


Creative Nugget:  A rainbow blend of Oxide Inks were applied to a mixed media panel.  The flowers from the Happy Day stamp set were clear embossed randomly over the panel.  A Versafine Onyx Black stamp pad was swiped over the entire card.  A paper towel was used to wipe off the black ink from the embossing and heat applied to bring back the shine on the embossing.  The Surrounded in Prayer image was colored with Copic Markers and the extra flower and butterfly were watercolored using the same Oxide Ink colors.

Creative Nugget:  The background for this card was made exactly the same way except instead of applying black ink over the embossing, white ink was used.  The sentiment from the Happy Day stamp set was black embossed on vellum and extra watercolored flowers were added to finish the card.

These card will be submitted for the following challenges:

I hope you will be inspired to give this fun technique a try!
Happy stamping!
