Great week and a new card................
I have had a whirlwind week, we got an offer on our house in North Carolina and we went to Florida to look for a place and were so blessed to have found a place that suits us just fine and now the work begins. We are downsizing and I am retiring from my day job and guess what??!?! I get to be a Stampin UP Demo full time............ I am so excited. This has been my dream and my goal for a long time now.
I finally took some time to make a card, using the By The Tide set and I used the shaving cream technique. (the cheap dollar store type of fine to use) I have not used this technique in a couple of years and thought the fish would look nice with it. I wanted to use pool party and lucky limeade but I did not have those refills so I used tempting turquoise and old olive. I cased the placement of the stamps from Yvette Ash, thank you Yvette for your inspiratin, I loved the way yours turned out.
In case you do not know how to use the shaving cream technique. It is so easy but a little messy. You put shaving cream in a flat container. I used my large powder pal but normally I used a foam tray from the grocery store that I have saved. Then you decide on your colors and ramdomly place several drops of ink refills of each color on top of the shaving cream. Use a plastic fork in a zig zag motion to blend the colors into each other. Not too much and let a little white show through.
Then lay your whisper white cardstock on top of the shaving cream and pick it up and take a squeegee to wipe the shaving cream off. (the messy part) you may have to use a paper towel to completely clean off the shaving cream. You can use the same shaving cream 2 or 3 times on new whisper white piece of cardstock, then it gets a little muddy. Set aside and let it dry. Then I stamped the fish with black stazon and cut out the fish and mounted it with dimensionals on the whisper white cardstock after I stamped the rest of the card.
Of couse you could use the whole card as a background. I love to use this technique for a sky using only one color of blue depending on what suits my fancy that day!
I will be teaching this technique to my classes next month. Contact me if you would like a hands on class.
