Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with an old but fun technique sometimes called Joseph's coat.
I blended Distress colours on white card stock, and added a layer with a stencil.  I then stamped my flower image with Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I blended black distress ink over the whole page varying the depth of colour and then wiped it off the embossed image. This allows the base layer colour to show through. I added some stenciling and stamping on the black for additional interest.

 You can just see the stenciling in lower portion of the leaves.

This is so dramatic with the beautiful floral image and the colors peeking through the black! I think it's time to try this technique!

WOW! At first I thought that you used a black card and created graphics on it. Thank you for the description of this card, it is surprising and very effective. I also love how you added a little color to the flowers, it makes the card eye-catching.
