Rubberstamping 101: Joseph's Coat Technique

Supplies List:
~Glossy cardstock
~Rainbow Ink pad
~Dark ink pad (black or navy the darker the better)
~Clear embossing ink
~Clear embossing powder
~Rubberstamp (one with more solid image works best)
~heat gun

1. Using a rainbow inkpad, ink up brayer.
2. Cover entire cardstock with brayered ink.
3. Stamp an image using embossing ink, sprinkle embossing powder on image and emboss image right on top of colored cardstock.
4. Then ink your brayer with dark ink, cover the entire card again with the new color.
5. Let the overcoat of ink dry.
6. Buff the card with a paper towel to remove the excess ink off of embossed image.

This buffing will allow the rainbow colors to show through very nicely. Works really nice on landscape images.

That's about it...good luck!
