I am so excited about this month's challenge at Technique Time Tuesday! It is the shaving cream technique and it is really cool.
There are instructions on the site. Initially, I used re-inkers in the shaving cream and made a bunch of "prints." So I thought about how to construct my card--but then today I went back to look a the tutorial and it said to use sprays. Sprays! That totally changed everything. So for this I used a blue Dylusions spray and such a difference than if you use the re-inkers.
I swirled some but not all of the color. I like the color drops. Then I used light modeling paste and a Tim Holtz stencil. I used a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp and pop dotted it. Then I glued down some silver sequins.
Now if you look closely you will see that the paste is a little brown in parts. That is because I have a serious problem cleaning my stencils! LOL Of course I didn't realize it until it was too late but I am pretty sure it was walnut ink distress ink on my stencil. It was too late but instead of scrapping it, I embraced it. I like that it kind of breaks up the blue and white.
I do hope you come and join us for this fun technique. You can get your kids to do it too. Instead of re-inkers or sprays you can use food coloring. :)
Until next time my friends...embrace the imperfection!
