Joseph's Coat Technique

Tonight while going thru some tutorials on Splitcoaststampers.com, I came across one called Joseph's Coat. It intriqued me, so I had to try it.

Here's the link to the tutorial on-line:

Some tips:
Use a high gloss paper ... regular paper will warp.
Images with more filled in areas will show more color thru the black.
You don't need the rainbow ink pads. I used paper towels and randomly colored in.
Be sure you tap firmly to get the embossing powder excess off the card.
DO NOT use a paper towel at the end as suggested in the tutorial. It will put scratch marks across the paper and designs. Instead use the brayer without reinking to smooth it all out and expose more of the colors.

I'm going to use the above pieces as accent pieces on a card I think.
