Shaving Foam Background

Hi Everybody,

I have been messing about with some really cheap shaving foam again and the backgrounds I have made will turn into some really pretty cards.

This Birthday card has the addition of Gilding Flakes to it and I really like the look of this.

The Gilding Flakes come in several different colours from Craft Stash

I then split the panel in two and added it to an embossed panel with foam tape.

The New Home one has been shaped at the top with a die that was free with a magazine and again added to an embossed panel 

I am really pleased with both and will show you the others as I make them.

I used Alcohol re-inkers for mine but  you would get a result just as good using any other re-inker that you have and there is a vast range of colours at 

But would you like me to video the making of some more and how to add the gilding flakes or glitter to them??

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
