Trapped Resist...Two Ways

Hello sweet friends!  Cathy here with two cards to share using some of the stamp sets from the SNSS April Release.  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.


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.

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 flowers added to finish the card.

The stamp sets used for this card are available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.  Happy Day is the Stamp of the Month and will automatically be added to your $75 order before tax and shipping.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the April Release Blog Hop, there's still time to enter your comments to be eligible for the PRIZE.  Just click on the link for more details!

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