Cheri here and I'm very excited to be bringing you another project of the week for The House That Stamps Built blog. I've chosen a technique that many of you have seen before. It's an easy technique that renders a different look no matter how many times you do it, and therefore gives endless stunning results. It's simply called the shaving cream technique and here is how it's done.
The supplies are basic and simple; shaving cream (the cheapest works great), but avoid any with additives or the gel type. They may affect the results with the inks or paints you might use. An assortment of dye ink refills or acrylic paints. Popsicle sticks for stirring, a tray to layer the shaving cream on (or paper plate), I used an old cookie sheet. A heavier card stock works best, 110# or 120# or watercolor paper works too. A ruler or some straight edge tensile to scrape the shaving cream off the card stock with.
The first thing you'll do is spray your tray with shaving cream
