Shaving Cream Technique

Try the "Shaving Cream" technique.
You'll get a different result each time!

First, spray shaving cream onto a plate.

Drop a few drops of re-inker onto the shaving cream. Don't get the colors too close together...or you'll get a "muddy" look.
I used Yoyo Yellow, Green Galore, and Pretty In Pink.

Use a stylus, toothpick, or something with a small point to "stir" the color. Be careful... don't let the colors run together. You may get a "muddy" effect.

The shaving cream should look something like this.

Press card stock into the shaving cream.

Lift off card stock.

Use a spatula to scrape off the shaving cream.

Let it dry for a minute or two.

Stamp image using "Basic Black" ink.

Outline the stamped image with Green Galore and Regal Rose "Stampin' Write" markers.

Add glue and "Dazzling Diamonds" glitter to the center of the flower.

Stamp large "doodle" stamp with "Green Galore" ink on to "Green Galore" card stock.

Attach stamped image to the front of the card.

You're done!
