 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. 

 Thanks for stopping by.  Contact me if you have any questions.  919-334-8800
