Shaving Cream Technique

One of my favorite techniques I learned to do years ago is this one. I've done it a few times over the years for Therapy Card Nite, but guess I never realized how many new girls have come along. Only a few remember doing this technique, but for the new ones it was another "wow" to them!!! Once again it is a technique that uses our ink refills so the girls learned a couple of ways to use them. I think that in itself "wowed" them. It's fun when you can find more than one use for something so simple that it gets overlooked most of the time. To add a little something more to the card, we put some shaker eyes on and glittered the wings up. Once again, this technique allows each card to come out differently. I love all the different patterns that come out of this technique and the way the colors start to blend together after laying a few down in the shaving cream.
