Hi Everyone! Well what can I say, I haven't finished tidying up my craft room, I got side tracked. My craft table was calling me to play and I was also helping to set up the wonderful new Challenge Post over at Altered Pages and do some sponsorship stuff for Party Time Tuesdays. This also means I still haven't got round to visiting all my lovely crafty friends blogs to leave some love either.
I felt the urge yesterday to play with my dye re-inkers and get messy with some shaving foam. I now have some fabulous backgrounds for my cards and ATC's.
I also made this tag using my shaving foam backgrounds with another new challenge in mind. Anything But a Card and their theme this fortnight is Texture.
I have used the ribbon, paper strip and flower to highlight some of the colors in my background. To add some simple texture I have embossed with my Divine Swirls embossing folder and run some black ink over the top to bring out the embossed design.
So here is some of those results of my shaving foam adventure. What is it about Blue Ink. It doesn't matter in what form I use it, it seems to be the only color determined to stain my hands and fingers.
This is the first generation of color after first being added to the foam. I have used the SU Colors of Pixie Pink, Green Galore and Brilliant Blue (all retired).
Eventually the colors start to mix so I have added a few more drops of color into the foam
for the second generation
Each time I remove a piece of paper I allow it to dry a little and then scrap the remnants of the foam back into the mix, as the foam starts to dissolve I also mix it up a little in the tray. This is the third generation of color.
I do so love getting messy and playing with color!
