- C6 card blank constructed from 300gsm Bristol board, matching sized envelope
- Snippets of white, black and glittered card
- Using Hero Arts neon green ink I stamped Stamplorations grungey grid and Recollections splatter image and let dry .... I originally inked this a couple of days ago but the card turned in to a complete disaster so I never finished it - lucky for me, huh?
- Recollections trio of trees and sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
- Aleene's acrylic sealant sprayed to prevent accidental water damage in transit!
Yesterday I was definitely in to messy "fun with shaving foam" mode!!! I recently bought some inks I thought might work for Christmas projects. Want to see?
|Add ink to shaving foam - don't worry too much about being neat - you can see that I didn't!!|
|Swirl it around - have some fun! I used a pencil, necessity being the mother of invention!|
|Simple materials used|
|And some finished "pieces" - just waiting to be made in to something else|
- Paper plate (snagged courtesy of my neighbour, Sally, thanks pal!)
- Shaving foam (shamelessly stolen from my hubby - it's OK, it doesn't use much!) - spread it out evenly - I used an old store card
- Inks ..... I used a combination: Adirondack red pepper and butterscotch spray inks, Tsukineko lavender and Distress Ink picked raspberry re-inker. Dot (or in my case SPLODGE) inks - not necessary to be too tidy with your placement
- Swirl the inks around (I used a pencil - everything washes off so can be used again) till you like the pattern
- Smoosh your paper snippets in to the foam - it's best to have a pile ready to "smoosh" remove, scrape off excess shaving foam (I used a clear plastic ruler for this) and return to paper plate.
- Place inked cardstock somewhere to dry off properly
- You can smooth and swirl after each "smooshing" ... as you can see, the colours gradually "mute" a little more each smoosh but you can get loads out of a good squirt of shaving foam and just a few drops of inks ... have fun peeps!
- It's best to have some paper towel to clean up after each "smoosh" but, once you're done, the paper plate can be disposed of and the pencil, ruler, store card can all simply be run under the tap/faucet and dried, ready to start the next project!
So, here's what made it in to cards, using one of the darker and one of the lighter pieces, some black card and some red and brick coloured card and stamped with trees and sentiment from Recollection
|A card made using one of the early prints, with the deeper colours|
|And one of the later (and more muted) prints|
I was delighted to find that one of my CAS cards had been showcased over at Simply Less Is More - thanks so much ladies. This is one of my "must enter" challenges!
Have a fab Saturday
