Shopping Our Stash Challenge 9 Technique Turn Back



I call this Guacamole by the Pool...or Carla experiments with the shaving cream background technique!

This week at SOS we have this fun challenge:

Do you have some supplies gathering dust for a special technique that you haven't used in awhile (or ever)? Perhaps some Dreamweaver stencils, quilling, alcohol inks, shaving cream backgrounds, brayer techniques, melted crayon backgrounds, microfine glitter and scor-tape, even coloring with a different medium than you usually use? Dust off those supplies and create something new! You aren't limited to those suggestions, but be sure to tell us what technique you are using.

I played with the shaving cream background technique...It was fun and I think I will try it again sometime. Here's a link to a tutorial. I used Distress reinkers and tried it with glossy cardstock and regular Gina K layering weight..both worked well.

I stamped a sentiment from Unity on the card, added some ribbon, and voila! The cardstock base/layer is from Gina K too. Misc ribbons.

I hope you will challenge yourself this week and join us!

I am also entering this into All Things Unity- ribbon or twine!
