Shaving Cream Technique, Take 2

Good afternoon! It feels like it has been ages since I shared a project with you. I have taken on a new writing job for a web hosting company, and it is quite intensive. Now that I've settled into a nice rhythm with the daily deadlines, I have time to share this cute little card I made last week.

Remember my shaving cream and reinker technique post? Well, I finally received more reinker colors. I am now crazy in love with this super simple technique! For the actual technique instructions, head to this post here to see what you'll need and what to do. After I was done swirling my inks in the shaving cream and applying it to the paper, this is what I ended up with:

 Pretty cool, huh? I used Distress ink reinkers Peeled Paint, Antique Linen, and Stormy Sky on this project. When it was dry, I affixed it with tape runner to the card which had been sprayed with Iridescent Spray & Sparkle. I love that stuff! I thought a simple stamp would be best, so I pulled out my Humphrey's Corner - Humphrey unmounted stamp set which I've placed on EZ Mount Foam, stuck it on my Rock-A-Blocks, and inked the flower in the vase and "Thinking of you" sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.
 See all that sparkle? Patina Stickles were a great touch to outline the inked backing paper, and a pretty piece of ribbon under the sentiment screamed out to me to be included :)

The flower was colored with my Spectrum Noir pens: LG2 for the stem, CT2 for the flower center, and IB1 for the water in the vase.

I hope you like it, and that you'll give this shaving cream technique a try. Watch the Crafter's Companion Facebook page for sneak peeks of our soon-to-be-released Frou Frou stamp set (which I will be showing off this weekend! They are so pretty!) Don't miss all the fun, head over and like us to stay in the loop if you don't already!
