Now that we have glossy paper back, I wanted to do my Technique challenge for the Creative Crew on Splitcoaststampers using glossy paper. So, I chose, Joseph’s coat. I learned a couple of things and I wanted to share it with you.
First, you must use Classic Basic Black Ink. I tried it first with Archival Basic Black. It wiped right off. YIKES! Finally, don’t use pastel colors. I sponged Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder on the background and only the Elegant Eggplant showed up through the clear embossing powder (you can see it on the edges).
I used the following products on this card: Dare To Dream Hostess Stamp Set, Postscript Stamp Set (it’s a background set). I also used the decorative ribbon punch, Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon, glitter enamel dots, 5/8″ burlap ribbon (just one of the strings pulled from it) and the Stampin’ Up! Stapler (yes, it’s no longer available but I still have mine and it works great!)
