Shaving Foam...

Good Morning Crafters

We hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

Today we have a fabulous tutorial from Rachel.

Another use for your shaving foam ladies to create some stunning backgrounds.

Spray cheap shaving foam into a plastic tub and spray with inks.
You can use any inks, Inkadinks work well with this technique.

Mix the inks around to create a pattern.  
Do not overmix or the colours will go sludgey

Apply directly to a stencil attached to card. 
Move the foam around and then remove most of it, if the colours haven't come through very well re-apply until you are happy.

Remove the stencil and leave the card to dry.
Once dry use stencil brushes to add background colours and over stamps.
Matt and layer onto a card.
