This technique is a little messy, but it does look nice. The 6 x 6 layout was created by April Kegg, CTMH Independent Consultant. Here are her directions:
- cardstock (I used glossy paper.)
- shaving cream (not gel)
- 1-3 re-inkers
- cookie sheet covered with foil (I used a paper plate.)
- small shower squeegee (I used a popsicle stick and paper towels.)
- lots of paper towels
- Squeeze enough shaving cream onto the foil covered cookie sheet as big as your piece of cardstock.
- Sprinkle a few drops of the re-inkers into the shaving cream.
- Use a straw or paint brush handle to swirl the colors. (I used a popsicle stick.) Do not mix too much or colors will combine and you will have a solid color.
- Place cardstock straight down into the shaving cream. Press to get full coverage.
- Gently pull up and lay onto a clean paper towel. Use the shower squeegee to remove the access shaving cream and behold your masterpiece. (I used paper towels to do this.)
Guess what? I didn't use glossy cardstock from my scrapbook supply. I used a piece of glossy photo paper that was left over from printing pictures. I got this idea, because I hate throwing away this paper. Sometimes I only use a small piece of the 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Photo Paper plus glossy. I think it worked perfectly.
I used white daisy pigment ink for the Celebrate sentiment. I heat set it with my embossing gun to ensure it was dry. It takes a long time for pigment ink to dry and I am not patient enough to wait. I used white embossing powder on the party images and brads in the middle of them. I finished them with pop dots, so they would jump off the card. Other supplies I used are listed below.
Okay, you can take your sunglasses off now. Well, you better wait until you look away from the screen...LOL!
