Looking for a unique background for a stamped card? Try the fun and easy shaving cream technique!
Shaving Cream (not the gel kind) - unscented
Stamp Pad Reinkers in various colors
Flat container (a pie plate or cookie sheet works well)
Spray shaving cream into container in a zig-zag manner.
Squeeze a few drops of different reinker colors into the shaving cream in different areas.
Using a knife, lightly spread the shaving cream using a back and forth motion. Do not overly mix the shaving cream and reinkers.
Press the cardstock into the shaving cream, making sure you fully cover the front of the cardstock.
Scrape off shaving cream with the knife and wipe with a paper towel.
You can make additional background cardstock using the same shaving cream. The colors will become less intense and more muddied after about 3-4 applications.
Here are some examples of shaving cream cards:
