Oooh, pretty! I just did a swap with the set, wish I'd seen this card first! I definitely would have done the Joseph's Coat! It looks beautiful with the Twist Spectrum Pad. I never know how to use that one. Thanks for sharing.

Here are the directions for the Joseph's Coat technique as seen on this card:
Glossy White Cardstock
Basic Black Classic Pad or other dark color
Crystal Clear Embossing Powder
Brayer (I use 2: 1 for Black only, 1 for all my other projects)
Step 1: Brayer the spectrum pad of your choice on to the glossy white cardstock and allow it to dry.
Step 2: Rub the embosssing buddy over the cardstock, then randomly stamp your images with Versamark ink.
Step 3: Pour crystal clear embossing powder over stamped images, and heat to emboss. Allow to cool.
Step 4: Brayer Basic Black dye ink over cardstock to cover completely.
Step 5: Wipe excess ink from stamped images to make them POP!
I use one brayer with black ink only because it is nearly impossible to clean. I keep a separate attachment to use with all of my other ink colors.
I have seen other ways of doing this technique, so there may be an easier way. Have fun with it!
