One of the groups I am on issued a challenge to use the shaving cream technique to create backgrounds and use them to make a card.
This is what is needed to do the shaving cream background:
Besides the tray, reinkers, shaving cream and a skewer you also need some cut pieces of white cardstock to 'print' on and some paper towels for cleanup.
To begin, you spray the shavig cream into the tray and flatten it out with the skewer. Then you drip reinkers onto the cream and use the skewer to swirl it around. The cardstock is pressed onto the surface, lifted away and wiped off with the paper towel.
What is left behind is a marbled-look pattern on the cardstock surface.
It works best to use harmonious colors of reinker so you don't get 'mud'.
The first few 'pulls' may have ink that is too dark - mine did - but the more it is stirred and printed the more muted the ink will become.
Here are mine:
When the patterns were too subtle, I added another color of ink:
I ended up with 10 sheets of cardstock off of one shaving cream tray. LOTS more cream in the can so there is hope for more to come.
