Shaving Cream Technique

I finally have another technique for all of those who have been waiting.
You will need the following:
Shaving Cream--any brand non-scented
Ink Refill--2-3 colors
White Cardstock ( want it cut in a small enough piece to fit in tin)
Metal baking tin--Got mine at Walmart
Paper Towels
(Paper, Refill Ink and Stamps are all Stampin' Up!)

Want to fill Tin with Shaving Cream, dont have to fill the whole tin maybe 1/2 way up. Smooth the Shaving Cream in Tin. Once all is smooth--drop 4 colors each in random pattern on Shaving Cream. Wtih the Fork drag colors around( dont drag colors to much or it will become muddy looking and wont give a good color effect) Once you achive the right pattern in the shaving cream you place paper down in Shaving Cream and push (not to hard) to make sure you get even color and shaving cream. Once you feel like you have enough color on the paper lift it out if you want you can take another piece of cardstock that you cut and lay over the top of piece of paper you pulled out of the tin and smooth with your hand. Once you pull them apart you take the paper towel and wipe off the shaving cream. Set aside and let dry. You can keep using the shaving cream mixtured until the color is gone. Once you are done with the Shaving Cream you can rinse out container in the sink. See the picture below for example.

Stay tuned for another Technique.

Until my next rambling....Have a wonderful week :)

All products are Stampin' Up!--Cuttlebug was used for the embossing.
