Serene Silhouettes and Shaving Cream

 I have wanted to try the Shaving Cream technique for a while and finally did for one of  my classes needless to say my Ladies enjoyed it.

The one on the left was my sample the one on the right one is the one demonstrated in class.

You can see the difference in the two cards, the left one is lighter and the right one is darker. This is a very easy technique a little messy but well worth it. All you do is spray some shaving cream onto a plate then add a few drops of ink (I only used 2 colours) use a toothpick or skewer to mix into a pattern, I went across and then up and down for each colour then mixed the two colours in the middle but be careful not to mix to much otherwise you don't get the right effect. Add your piece of card stock face down pat a little then pick up carefully,  wipe Shaving cream off with a tissue then dry with a Heat Tool, leave to cool then stamp with your image

Stamp set: Serene Silhouettes, Butterfly Basics (sentiment)
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Memento Ink
Card Stock: Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Whisper White
Other: Tombow Multi Adhesive Heat Tool

Now on to my project. I have used the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and Butterflies Thinlit Dies on page 26 of the Occasions Catalogue. All my cards are in the colour combinations of Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Naturals White card stock along with the Irrresistibly Yours Designer Paper on page 15 of the Sale A Bration Supplement. 

For my first card I cut out a Butterfly with the Butterflies Thinlets in Naturals White Cardstock then sponged over it with Crumb Cake ink. The stamped Butterfly is layered with a Blushing Bride one with just the slightest bit showing.

For my second card I cut out a Butterfly in Blushing Bride which is layered with a Crumb Cake  one underneath just to give it some depth.

For the third card I  have used some of the new White Jute Ribbon (page43 Occasions Catalogue)  I used the same technique for the Labels Thinlet Die except it has a triple layer of Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and Naturals White cardstock, I saw the idea for this card on Pinterest made by Susan Best. I have also sponged a piece of Irrresistibly Yours Designer Paper  for the last layer on the card.

 For my fourth and last card I punched out a piece of Naturals White Cardstock at both ends with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch (page 35 Occasions Catalogue) I then placed a Butterfly on it and sponged over it then removed the Butterfly to give this effect. 

Thanks for stopping by I hoped you enjoyed looking at my cards now you can hop along to Tricia Raineri and check out her project. Don't forget to leave a comment for each blog as I am sure all the Demonstrators would love to hear from you.
