Shaving Cream Technique

Yesterday's Inspiration Challenge on SCS was to go to Flutter and choose something that inspires you. I chose a pearl globe necklace because of the background cloth that it was on. It reminded me of the shaving cream technique. The "globe" of pearls is a baggie with pearls from the Pretties Kit taped to the back of the glossy cardstock, after I punched out a 1 3/4" circle. The top of the necklace was created by punching the eyelet punch in brushed silver and then punched out with a 1" circle punch. The top is half of a 1/2" circle punch. The medalion for the saying was created by a scallop punch and using the corner rounder punch on the circle that was punched out of the shaving cream piece. I hope you like the card, because it sure was fun!
Shaving Cream Technique: spray some shaving cream into a metal pie pan; put drops of reinkers with one or more colors (here with Lilac & Eggplant) in the shaving cream and swirl around. Place a piece of glossy white cardstock on the shaving cream, lift up, and repeat until it's covered with shaving cream. Place the glossy cardstock on a non-porous surface (like inside a metal sink) and wipe the shaving cream off with a paper towel. And look at that great result! If it's not dark enough for you, add a bit more reinker and repeat.
Thanks for stopping by the stamping station.
