For this next one we used the brayer to get a reverse image, ie to be able to have the two elephants from Wild About You to be facing each other - cool huh! Another great use for the brayer is to ink large background stamps, it gives really good even coverage - it was used here on the paisley background stamp (though the picture is shocking and you probably cant even tell its been bg stamped!) Colours were inspired by the Sarah designer series paper used on the card...

This is the card that everyone made at the class, the scan doesn't do it justice - much nicer IRL! We used the Stampin Around Flitting By Jumbo Wheel to create the Joseph's coat effect. Essentially you take a piece of white gloss cardstock and use the Brayer to colour it with the 'Celebration' spectrum pad. Then ink the wheel with versamark, stamp and emboss with clear detail powder. The Brayer is used again with black ink over the top, the ink on the embossed image can then be wiped off to reveal the multicoloured stamped image - Just like magic!! Other stamp sets used on this project are the dots from Bundle of Joy (Spring mini cat) and the greeting is from Warmest Regards (hostess set). Cardstock colours are Pink Passion and Lovely Lilac, ribbon is pink grosgrain.
Here are some other sample cards I made using the Josephs Coat technique:
This is probably my favorite of all the cards, its so simple but effective. This one uses the 'Blue Frost' Spectrum pad, the stamp set is Renaissance Angels, cardstock is Brilliant Blue & Bashful Blue.
This one really didn't scan true to life. The card colour is Gable Green although it looks nothing like it in this scan. This one is the 'celebration spectrum pad again and the Reason to Smile hostess stamp set.

The super cute elephant is from the Wild About You stamp set (love it!), I've stamped it in Pale Plum then used the 'rock n roll' technique to ink the edges in Perfect Plum. I stamped a second elephant in Perfect Plum cut out his ear and stuck it on to my first elephant with Stampin Dimensionals. The patterned papers and alpha stickers are from Basic Grey (Oh Baby Girl collection). Cardstock colours are Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Very Vanilla and I've used some cream grosgrain ribbon to tie the card closed. Here's what it looks like open...
