Just A fun Card

Hello everyone! I have been going crazy trying to get all the details hammered out for the crop but did make some fun backgrounds for some upcoming submissions! This is using shaving cream, re-inkers and little else!
I put a small amount of shaving cream on a clean surface.
Next I add a few drops of ink randomly over the shaving cream.
I then take my palette knife and "slice" through the ink in a couple of different directions.

I take the paper/card stock and place it face down on the shaving cream mixture and press until the card stock is flat on the work surface.

I lift the paper off and scrape off the excess foam with the palette knife and let dry.

You can use the same mixture over and over until it becomes too muddy. I often like the 2nd or 3rd dipping best.
I stamp my images on the background, layer images, layer the paper etc and put my card together! The stamps used here are from Prickley Pear. I used a little leaf button to finish the project.
If you have seen this before I hope I brought it back to the fore front of your mind and make some great backgrounds. If not, go make a mess and have a blast!

Don't forget to become a fan of my blog and check out the details of the upcoming crop in Springfield, MO!

Happy Creating...

Love the look on the paper. This would be a fun way to get kids into card making too. Thanks for the inspiration.
