Another scheduled post ... I'm still off on a break but hope to be back soon! :)
Marbling with shaving foam ... I wonder who thought that up??!! It works great, but is super messy, so be prepared ... you have been warned. :)
My friend Nancy mentioned that she did her shaving foam marbling next to her kitchen sink ... great idea! I used a cookie sheet for containing the foam, and a kitchen spatula to remove the foam from my card front. Then just washed everything down the sink. Saved using tons of paper towel.
I used way more cream than I needed, so use less than you think. And I had several cut card fronts ready to press into the cream and re-inker mixture, and still needed to get out more. You can just keep spreading the cream and adding more drops of re-inkers. Your colours get darker as you go along, but I ended up with several pieces that I can use for backgrounds or for die-cutting. Definitely worth a try!! The video I followed is HERE.
One other tip I learned ... once you pull the card front off of the shaving foam, let it sit for a couple of minutes before removing the foam. This will prevent the ink from smudging and give you more of a marbled look.
I made this for CAS Mix Up's September Challenge - Marbling.
This has been so much fun learning different ways to get a marbled look. :)
