This is a very easy technique, and so fun. The name gives it away, "Shaving Cream Technique."
Shallow palatte, or meat tray
Foam shaving cream
Paper Towels (not in photo)
Straw or stir stick (not in photo)
Spray shaving cream on pallate
Using your straw, flatten the top of the shaving cream.
Randomly drip alcohol ink on top of the shaving cream.
Using your straw, make swirling motion so the ink is moved around.
This is how your palatte will look.
Take your paper and place it on top of the shaving cream.
This is how your paper will look.
Take a second sheet of paper and place it on top of your first paper.
Wipe shaving cream off your paper.
This is how your paper will look. Allow to dry completely. You are now ready to make your cards.
In this card the shaving cream technique was used as a background paper.
Here the image was stamped directly onto the shaving cream paper.
