Technique Tuesday - Shaving Cream

I have a fun (and messy!) technique for you this week!

You will need:

Shaving Cream, Plastic Plates, Tissues, Reinkers, Bone Folder, Stazon, Whisper White Card Stock

Start by squirting some shaving cream onto a plastic plate. Smooth it over with your bone folder.
Drop a couple of ink drops into the shaving cream (here I used Regal Rose and Purely Pomegranate)

Still using the bone folder, mix the colours around. You can mix them as little or as much as you like - EXPERIMENT!

Press Whisper White CS into the shaving cream, making sure that evey bit of the CS is touching the shaving cream

Wipe the shaving cream off in a swirly motion (you may need A LOT of tissues here!). Leave to dry, or dry with heat tool

Using Staz-On, stamp the image the Shaving Cream CS

Cut around the flowers.

Using Basic Black ink, stamp the whole flower pot image onto Sahara Sand

Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the fowers and peel off backing
Adhere the coloured flowers to the Sahara Sand CS
Colour the leaves with Always Artichoke using the Ink Pad and an Aqua Painter

Make ticket punches out of main piece
Make ticket punches in the corners of the Purely Pomegranate CS
Mount Main piece onto Purely Pomegranate

Place strong double sided tape along ends of ribbon. Cut off at edge of card
Adhere everything in place
To add a bit of detail to it, I have pierced around the centre piece
