AZ Donna - The technique came from the Technique Junkie (patstamps.com) but a Joseph's coat is done by either using a brayer or sponging ink onto your paper. Then you stamp your image with versamark and cover with crystal embossing powder and heat to set the image. Then you brayer or stamp a darker ink (traditionally black or navy) over the top of the card and buff the darker ink of of the embossed image. A reverse means that you stamp an image like By Definition, then use versamark and embossing powder, heat to set image, and then brayer or sponge light colored inks over the cardstock. Buff off the ink from the embossed image and you have a reverse Joseph's coat.
