Shaving Cream Nautical Theme card - Try Stampin on Tuesday #418

The sketch challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday  #418 has a nautical theme, so I did something different. I made a background e that looks like waves on the ocean, using the shaving cream technique.

Shaving Cream Background:
1.  Put shaving cream (unscented) on a paper plate
2.  Add reinkers - Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay)
3.  Using a coffee stick stir all the colours together just enough to mix them
4.  Place card stock on top of this mixture.
5.  Scrape of  excess shaving cream and let card stock dry.
6.  Repeat

The shaving cream background was added to a piece of Whisper White, which was added to a Bermuda Bay card base.

Three different size circles were die cut using Shimmer White card stock, and layered with slightly larger scallop Bermuda Bay circles. Each circle had a different image stamped on it with Night of Navy ink.- all from "Sailing Home"
Large circle:  The anchor with a Bermuda Bay ribbon attached to the top
Medium circle: The sentiment "Thanks"  and birds over head
Small circle:  A Sailing Home steering wheel trinket.

The circles were adhered to the card front differently than in the sketch. A 1/2" strip of Bermuda Bay car stock was adhered to the upper background piece before the circles were added.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Sailing Home
Inks: Night of Navy, (Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Balmy Blue re inkers)
Papers:  Shimmer Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
Accessories:  Shaving Cream, Layering Circle dies, Sailing Home trinket, 1/8" Bermuda Bay ribbon

I've never tried this technique - is it really very messy to do ? It looks fabulous and a great take on our theme this week - thanks for joining us at TSOT
