Something New with Falliday

It's Tuesday which means it's time to try something new. And that's absolutely okay because I tried something new when I created my second card for Falliday. Dina's "Tutorial Tango" has the participants scurrying to the tutorials on SCS because we are to choose a tutorial that begins with the first letter of our first name to use for our card.

Oh my! My. name. is. Jeanette.

There simply aren't many words that begin with the letter "J" so I was a bit nervous when I went to the gallery. I had two from which to choose - a Joy Fold Card or Joseph's Coat.

I've made Joy Fold Cards before, so I decided to try the Joseph's Coat technique, something I've never done before. It actually kind of reminded me of an art project I remember doing when I was in grade school. Back then we colored a piece of paper - all over - with lots of colors. Then we completely covered the coloring up with black crayon. It took FOREVER to do that. Once we'd finished that, we used a little tool to scrape off the black in places to "draw" a picture. The colors behind the black showed in the drawing.

So, for the Joseph's Coat technique, I first used a brayer to roll color onto paper, using one of those Stampin' UP! Spectrum ink pads so it would be a variety of colors. Then I stamped the image (a jack-o-lantern face) onto it with Versafine ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. The last step was to use the brayer to cover it completely with black ink. Of course the black ink didn't stick on the embossing, so the image is the colors of the first layer of ink.

It was definitely fun to do this technique.

Tangled Tutorial

While you're here on my blog let me also show you the cards I made for #3 and #4 of Falliday.

Falliday Challenge #3
Abundant Blessings

Lori challenged us to create a card including the word Blessings on it.

The star doesn't show up very well in the picture above. 
I stamped it with Brilliance Sunflower Yellos Ink.

The inside of the card also includes the word blessing:

Falliday Challenge #4
