It is time for the CAS Mix Up September Challenge: Stamping + Marbling + Your Choice. I used the messy, but very fun Shaving Cream Marbling Technique. My Choice..stenciling, fussy cutting and die cut.
This was my 1st time to try the Shaving Cream Marbling Technique. I have added video's below on the technique. I quickly discovered to do this technique in the kitchen near a sink! Or at the least...with lots of paper towels handy.
My supplies: 10" paper plate, paper towels, scraper, butter knife, skewer, SU reinkers, Whisper White CS and my DH's Shaving Cream :-)
I spread a thick layer of shaving cream onto my plate. Then used butter knife to smooth out the shaving cream. Dropped Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango and Peakaboo Peach. So...how did I get the colors for my coffee cup? Read on please......
I used my skewer to swirl the inks around in a circular motion not blending too much so the swirls would show. Then the fun began...I laid my 1st piece of Whisper White Thick CS onto my shaving cream and pressed down lightly. Picked up and placed onto a piece of paper towel. Then scraped off the cream, but...pressed too hard and in a straight line, which smeared and ruined my piece...Oh well, my 1st try. Looked at all the cream left...too much to waste.
Next step...used my knife to spread out shaving cream again. Added a few more drops of ink. Then tried again...this time not pressing down hard with scraper and and removing cream in a circular motion. Way Cool results...got a beautiful piece for a future card :-) I repeated these steps and got Two more pieces each a bit darker for future use.
Still plenty of shaving cream, but turning brown so......I added brown reinkers: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Melon Mambo. Looked like chocolate syrup and raspberries..Yum!
I swirled around the colors and placed my TCW Caffe Latte Stencil over the cream. I only got one good image with a bit of smearing on the edge. I let it dry and placed my stencil over the image and traced it with my art pen and fussy cut. Loved the results.
My 5th image from the original plate of shaving cream resulted in this really fun cup of Mocha :-) I used a very old retired SU stamp set..."Like it a Latte" for all my stamped images including the whipping cream and straw.
Enjoy and do give the Shaving Cream Technique a try for our CAS Mix Up September Marbling Challenge. Be sure and check out the other DT girls cards and our special Guest Designer this month Kimberly's (wienerhoneymooner) 2 cards too. We would love to have you join in the fun this month.
