Medallion with Reverse Joseph’s Coat Technique Card

Today's Tuesday Technique is Reverse Joseph's Coat. This is a case of a card I saw that was done by LeeAnn Greff, I changed some colors and the embellishments. This technique can be done with any solid stamp and a background stamp. For a masculine card try substituting Woodgrain or Sanded for En Francais and Nature Silhouettes or Paradis for the Medallion Stamp using masculine colors of brown and greens. See what you come up with!

Google this Betty ^^^^ – Joseph's Coat and many tutorials would come up.


Why is it a REVERSE Joseph's Coat?  What's the reverse part?  I'm confused on the name but love the card.

I found I did not make a technique card for this technique, so I found my original card and could figure out what I did!


1.  Sponge various light colors on card stock.

2. Stamp french background stamp in black.

3.  In Medallion stamp with Versamark and stamp to upper left side and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

4.  Now sponge medium dark colors over entire piece. Rub off excess ink from embossed areas with tissue. Viola!

I guess why it’s called reverse Joseph’s Coat that in Joseph’s Coat only the embossed area is visible and the rest is black?  Just my guess.  HTH
