Happy Victoria Day to my fellow Canadians!
Have you been out enjoying the beautiful weather? I spent Saturday and Sunday at a Craft show in Buckhorn and, although my earnings were not what is my norm, I met some wonderful people.
Today I spent preparing for my Thursday class. I am teaching how to make backgrounds using the Shaving Cream Technique - a little messy, but a lot of fun.
I used the tutorial with Splitcoast Stampers here
I did do some variations on the technique - instead of paper plates I plan on using aluminum plates. The colors of reinkers used: Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray.
Paper: glossy card stock
The two cards below are going to be made in class.
In card #1, the image is stamped directly onto the background and embossed.
Inks: Versa Mark, Black Stazon
Papers: Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Tea for Two DSP, Glossy card stock, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: 3" circle die, Scallop circle die #2, Scallop border punch, Small butterfly punch, Butterfly punch, Word Window punch, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, rhinestones, Black/gray ribbon, Black embossing powder, dimensionals.
For card #2, the image was placed on top of the Shaving Cream background.
