Craft Class - Shaving Cream Technique

Recently I held a Craft Class and showcased the Shaving Cream Technique for the attendees. Above is a sample of the 3 cards we made.

This technique whilst being a bit messy is also fun to make. Each and every card is unique as the ink in the shaving cream tends to have a mind of it's own. 

The 3 colours we used above were Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo. 

Brandy's Cards 
had a great tutorial for this. I have listed her instructions below.
  1. Fill your paper plate with shaving cream.
  2. Use a stick to smooth the shaving cream out a bit. Then add several drops of each of your re-inker colours.
  3. Mix shaving cream and re-inker in a swirling motion.
  4. Don't blend it too much - you want contrast.
  5. Press your card stock into the shaving cream. If using glossy paper make sure you are putting the glossy side down and it is getting completely covered.
  6. Pull your card stock out of the shaving cream.
  7. Using the edge of a credit card wipe off the excess shaving cream.
  8. Let it dry.
  9. Decorate accordingly.
