VIDEO – Joseph’s Coat Technique with Tropical Chic

Today, I have a video to show you on how to create a WOW! background with the Joseph’s Coat Technique. This is often known as the Tie Dyed Technique too.


  • Supplies:
    • Stamps – Tropical Chic
    • Card Stock – Thick Very Vanilla, Whisper White
    • Ink – Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce, Early Espresso, Versamark
    • Accessories – Clear Embossing Powder, Sponges, Sponge Brayer
  • Measurements:
    • Card Base (Thick Very Vanilla): 21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”)
    • Whisper White: 9.5cm x 13.8cm (4″ x 5¼”)
  • Instructions:
    • Sponge the Whisper White panel randomly with
      Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce inks.
    • Stamp images randomly using Versamark and heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
    • Use the Sponge Brayer to cover the entire panel with Early Espresso ink. Add as much or as little to achieve the desired effect. Polish the panel with paper towel to remove any ink from the embossed images.
    • Attach panel to Thick Very Vanilla card base.
    • Add sentiment as desired. (I have left mine black for now.)
  • Just a little decoration for the inside and envelope …

Here is the video with all the details:
