A new technique...

Hi! I am back after a longish break. 

I used a new technique (for me) called Joseph's coat. Thank you Priya, for putting the question in The Craft Shop quizz!

I painted a piece of ivory paper with two shades of yellow Camlin photo inks for an ombre effect. The stamp is Penny Black's Blissful, which I stamped with some Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used black acrylic paint to cover the card and wiped it away while wet. The 'Hello' die is from Wplus9.

Entering this card in the following challenges:

That is all from me for now. Looking forward to hearing from all of you!
