Warm Wishes - New SU In Colors

In the midst of all the rest of the commotion, I found shaving cream in my stamp room. Never having tried this technique I decided to attempt it. What fun! The little strip of marbled looking paper was created with shaving cream and three of the new in color reinkers. I versamarked the background, colored the image with markers on rubber and topped it all off with the new SU polka dot ribbon. I had a difficult time coming to grips with combining these colors but felt the marbled paper helped it work. Thank you for looking and commenting!

Thank you for the comment on my blog. In case you don't make it back there, I colored the Gorjuss Girl stamp and the flowers came in that color. Your shaving cream technique came out awesome! Beautiful card.

oh, I love the shaving cream technique. it was the first one I learned. When I tried it at home the only shaving cream I had had a ecualyptus scent to it and the cards smelled as great as the looked. I love your card.

I like playing with the shaving cream, you can always get some really interesting backgrounds that way and they are all unique.
