Dapper Denim – Shaving Foam Technique

By | 08/06/2017

I think of this as the technique that keeps on giving.   In my post from 29 May, I showed you some thank you cards that I made using a background effect created by drops of re-inker in shaving form.

Well, while I was playing with the shaving foam, I thought I might as well create as much as possible to make the most of the supplies used and here are some of the projects I came up with.  And dare I say it, I have plenty more so there may be more in the future.  It’s worth noting that while I say there are more, the technique gives you a different result every time.

For this first project I have just adhered onto a Dapper Denim cardbase and topped it with a stamped image from the Beautiful You stamp set, die cut using the Layer Ovals framelits, and the Silver Foil Trim is die cut using the Flourishing Phrases thinlits.  Given the detail in the back ground I feel a simple topper is all that is required.

To colour the image, I used Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Pencils for her skin however the pencils didn’t have just the right colour for her dress.  So in this instance I used a blender pen to pick up ink colour from a Dapper Denim Stamp pad and applied it to the image.

Being someone who is known for being a little frugal with supplies you may notice I have used a narrow off cut to decorate the edge of the insert just to tie it all together.

Happy stamping!
