Serene Silhouettes and Shaving Cream

 I have wanted to try the Shaving Cream technique for a while and finally did for one of  my classes needless to say my Ladies enjoyed it.

The one on the left was my sample the one on the right one is the one demonstrated in class.

You can see the difference in the two cards, the left one is lighter and the right one is darker. This is a very easy technique a little messy but well worth it. All you do is spray some shaving cream onto a plate then add a few drops of ink (I only used 2 colours) use a toothpick or skewer to mix into a pattern, I went across and then up and down for each colour then mixed the two colours in the middle but be careful not to mix to much otherwise you don't get the right effect. Add your piece of card stock face down pat a little then pick up carefully,  wipe Shaving cream off with a tissue then dry with a Heat Tool, leave to cool then stamp with your image

these cards are lovely. I like the way the green and blue are lightly wavy and not swirled around to make an effective sky and grass.

A great technique. I wondered how messy it would be for a class but now that you've done it maybe I will be brave enough:)
