SHOPPING OUR STASH #267 - Learn Something New (to you)



Hello crafty peeps! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we challenge you to try a new (to you) technique. Whether it be something that's been around for years and you've yet to try it, or a brand spanking new technique that's all the rage, we'd like to see it! For my card, I tried out the shaving cream technique. This was the first time trying it out. It is messy. It is fun! 


Here's the finished inside:

I have about a dozen Spectrum Noir reinkers, so I used two of them for my project. I pretty much followed along exactly from the video tutorial. The only thing I did different was instead of putting another panel in the shaving cream, I smooshed the two panels together, then pealed apart, wiped them off and let them dry. I cut one of them down to size for my card. I loved trying this out! The only thing I don't really care for is that now my card reeks of shaving cream! LOL!

I hope to see what fun new (to you) techniques you use on your projects. Please be sure to link up at Shopping Our Stash so we can find more techniques to try, I mean, to see what you created! While there, please check out what my teammates came up with, and leave them some bloggy lovin! Thanks for visiting!

  1. Love the colours you chose, the swirling of them is awesome. (I have only used dye ink for this) the depth of colour with the alcohol ink is better. Great take on the sketch and fab. card.

  4. Why I haven't tried this technique... don't want my card to smell, and the bearded husb doesn't use shaving cream. But it gives such an awesome marbled effect! Hmm. :D Love your card, Chris!

  6. Hello Chris: WOW!! Your card is the second card done with this technique EVER!!! As soon as I saw your cards I knew I needed to find out how this was done, I've never heard of this technique so I googled it and saw some really cool videos. Thank you for the link to this video, this is just so much fun I must try it.
    Your marbled background looks amazing for a first try, lovely, lovely colors.
    And you are correct in saying that we now have some new techniques to try, this one is definitely one of them.
    Thank you for the inspiration.
    Hugs,
    Maria.

  10. Very cool marbled effect, and a wonderful card that could truly go to a man or a woman. And BONUS: it's scented!!! (Laughed out loud when you noted that!)

  11. Chris, You're so right about the shaving cream technique being messy. But, when it's done right, it is soooo worth it. And your results were definitely worth it -- so much better than my earlier attempt with this technique turned out. LOL

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
