Happy Thursday to You!!!!!!!! I hope your week is going well. This was the card we did yesterday for the make n' take at Memory Bound in Ankeny, IA with one slight difference... we also put 3 purple gems along the body of the butterfly. Over on the Memory Bound Facebook Page Dawn has shared some pictures and she said I could share them here also.
Obviously something was funny in this picture!!!
This shows shaving cream on a styrofoam plate and sprayed with Dylusions Inks, Calypso Teal and Crushed Grape.
Here a skewer has been used to swirl the colors.
Then you lay your cardstock into the shaving cream..... bend the paper so it is curved, press in the center of the shaving cream and then let the edges roll down in and press to be sure you have contact with all the paper. If you lay the paper down flat you are likely to have some air pockets between the paper and the colored cream not allowing the color to touch everywhere. Pull the paper up from the cream, scrape it off, put the extra back on the plate and buff up your paper with a paper towel. You can then swirl the ink and shaving cream again and continue making other prints. You can keep making prints as long as you like the prints your getting. You can add more color or even a new color. Once you don't like what your getting anymore then start over with fresh shaving cream.
You don't have to swirl in circles, you can do whatever you'd like.
To finish up, the edges of the card, butterfly, and word were inked with Distress Ink Squeezed Lemonade. The edges are doodled with a black pen. The butterfly also has Wink of Stella Gl. Clear on it. Best and Friends are Elizabeth Craft Designs dies from Suzanne Cannon's A Way With Words line. Best is part of the Best Wishes set and Friends is a die by itself. They are cut from Shimmer Sheetz (Purple Iridescent), white cardstock, and black cardstock and the pieces layered together.
This picture is a bunch of pieces of various colors all done with the shaving cream technique.
