Shaving Foam Background

Hi Everybody,

I have been playing with the shaving foam again and this is the card I came up with

I used two shades of blue in some really cheap shaving foam and I created several panels from the mix.

This one was my favorite and so on top of it I stamped the butterfly in black and heat embossed it with clear powder

The butterfly was a magazine freebie and I have used it several times

I coloured the wings with my pencils and then out came the glue pen and I added glitter to them

A few sequins dotted here and there and this makes a really pretty card in to time at all.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  16. Very pretty card, I love using the foam tecq. have not done it in awhile. Christina which paper do you like using the plain card stock or the glossy paper. I like the glossy one better for it gives a nicer finish.
