CP for RC

A lot of paper crafting and rubber stamping techniques are packed into this one card!

Joseph’s Coat (Clear Emboss Resist), Iron-off Embossing, Rock and Roll, and Direct to Paper Inking.

Honestly, I thought about re-doing this video, which you all know me…my philosophy is “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”  But I’ve argued with myself for days over it.

View the video and see what you think.

I decided there’s a lot of fun things going on in this video and there’s a peek at what Eva’s been up to…so why did I want to trash it?  When it was all said and done, this is not my favorite card.

Can you guess what is bugging me about it?

It’s the LIMES!  The Cottage Ivy ink that I used is just too dark and it makes the limes look dirty.  Actually, at first, I thought that the Black Memento Ink was sticking to the Clear Embossed limes, but that wasn’t the case.  That ink is just so dark and greyed down that it looks a bit black-ish on some of the limes.

So…what would I do different next time?

NOT use Cottage Ivy on the layer of color beneath the embossing and black.  That would probably help a lot.

The Joseph’s Coat technique is awesome and you can get crazy awesome results with it.  Try bright colors and flowers or fall colors and fall leaves.  You will LOVE the fun looks you can get!

Even though this isn’t my favorite card, I hope you learned something and are inspired to get crafty today!
