Technique Twist #19 Shaving Cream

I had so much fun doing my marble Easter egg that I wanted to encourage you to  try it yourself. I used the Shaving Cream Technique and I even put a little Twist on the Technique by dry embossing it in the Chevron folder. It's all wrapped in some pretty organdy ribbon with a splash of silver also.

Come see what the other designers have done and play along HERE
There is a little tutorial below to show you how I created that wonderful
 marble look.

Thanks to Connie and Mary and the ColourQ Team for their inspirations as well. Click on their banners to play  along.


Now onto the Technique

You will need shaving cream and reinkers, a hard spatula, knife
and white paper

Spray shaving cream into a pyrex dish, and drop
steams of reinkers around the cream

Take the knife and swirl the colors around in the cream

Place the white card stock straight down on top of the mixture
and tap down/smoosh into the goop

Lifting at one corner, pull out the paper

Take the spatula and skim off the cream from the card stock

The one on the right is a second time around, re-swirling.
It's useable but muddier than the first!

Thank you for joining me today and I hope you will take some time to enter into one of the challenges above!
