Shaving cream, some ink &...

Well, I don't know if anyone has played with this. It's actually a really fun technique. I found it in a book, and I know people have talked about it.

Shaving cream some ink, and you get to have a bit of fun.

What you will need:

Shaving cream (any kind, any scent)

Ink refills. (As many or as little as you would like.)

card stock

cardboard (old stuff from box etc)

shallow pan.

First you take you pan and add your shaving cream. (the creamy kind) Spread it out in the pan. You may want to use a spatula or old credit card.

Add drops of ink onto it. Random here and there. I used three colors at first.

Then take a knife or something. (I used a wooded skewer) make lines like you would for a marble cake.

lay your card stock over and life up. Take cardboard and run over the card stock pulling the ink down.

that is it. blot & let dry.

Now, what Else we did was take the skewer and make circles added a 4th color and wow wow!! IT turned out really really cool. My mom and I were oooooooing & ahhhhing with each life. Now with the ones that were swirls, what we did was kind of blot not using the cardboard to smooth.

here are what they looked like. I am going to create a card to share with the pcs. They are now dry and ready to go.!

These are lovely. They look like expensive Italian papers, I can't think of the name.

Thank you card!

This is a super quick and easy card today.  I love how The megaphone comes out of the paper.
