Hi everyone, today I am sharing two cards featuring the gorgeous Forever Fern stamp set. It’s a great stamp set and I love using it with the Joseph’s Coat Technique. If you are not sure what this technique is, I recently shared a video showing exactly how to achieve such a cool look.
Usually, when I make cards with the Joseph’s Coat Technique I finish off the card with a black or brown layer of ink. I’ve also made cards with Night of Navy as the final colour. I decided to see how some other colours might look.
I decided to stick with the colour palette from the coordinating Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper Pack (even though I am not using the paper for either of my cards). To create the background I sponged Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green and Soft Sea Foam all over a Whisper White cardstock base. Don’t worry about how much of a hot mess it looks at this stage…it’s going to end up looking sensational!
It’s really important this ink is completely dry before proceeding. Either leave it to dry or hit it with your heat tool. Once dry, try not to touch this panel and use an embossing buddy if you have it. Stamp the images with Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder.
Here’s my first card…
Here’s my second card…
I don’t know about you but I love both shades. Do you have a preference? Have you given this technique a go yet? I hope you do. It really is easy and it packs quite the punch!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set, die set, etc, also comes a part of a bundle or suite, I link to all so that you have choices. I also link refills and basic supplies like adhesives which correspond with items used to make my projects.
