JAI 162 and SUO 69 - Shaving Cream Technique and Anything Sizzix

Hi!  Welcome back to the pre-MDS 'me'.  It's been over 2 months since I've entered a challenge and  also made a card with real ink and stamps!  I'm on holidays and had a whole afternoon today to get 'inky'. Yay!

The girls at Just Add Ink inspired me to call into the supermarket on my way home from work on Friday, to purchase a can of shaving cream/foam.  I've really wanted to try out the marbling technique using re-inkers and the fore mentioned 'product' for absolutely ages.  The JAI Challenge Blog have a great challenge to, 'Just Add a Technique You've Never Tried Before!'  So I did.

The majority of my cards involve using the Big Shot so I've 'double dipped' and entered my cards in the SUO Challenge to use 'Anything Sizzix'.

I had fun and messed up my craft desk again!

#1


The next card was inspired by the scraps sitting on my desk and I love how the subtle marbling on the doily turned out.

#2

It was so good to have the time to get back into my craft room after a 2 month break. I'll be back with one more project that I made today and then I probably won't have another opportunity to craft again until next week :(

Thanks for stopping by,

So glad our challenge inspired you to get 'inky' again Bron. I love the colour combo you used and the effect you got with the marbles and shaving foam, especially the subtleness on the doily. I must try this one myself sometime!
