I wanted to try a new technique for my Newport Ladies and decided to show them the Shaving Cream background technique. I used a cheap can of white shaving cream and applied a 1" layer on a plastic coated paper plate. I smoothed it out and added drops of Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry reinkers. Next I took a knife and using the tip swirled the colors around until there was very little white peeking through. Then I took WW cardstock and gently placed it on top of the shaving cream. I lightly touched the paper making sure it was touching the shaving cream. Next I removed the paper and wiped off the excess shaving cream with paper towels using a circular motion. I found I did not have to remove all of the shaving cream because I used my heat tool and it seemed to melt the extra away. The butterfly and greeting were stamped on a Window Sheet and applied to the shaving cream background with mini glue dots. This card was a messy hit!
