A few weeks ago, The Res-Q-Challenge blog issued a challenge to use marbling on your card. They mentioned the shaving cream technique, which I had never tried. This was also a challenge last week on StampTV. I finally gave it a try and it is a lot of fun! A bit messy (my kids would probably love it), but fun.
I adore the Bittybloom (chichiboulie) stamps from Stamping Bella. I think I like them more than the Bellas. Earlier this year, I used some of my tax refund fun money to place a big order. As usual, many of them still haven’t seen ink. In honor of the blooms on my peony bush, I inked up Peony Bittybloom. Isn’t she cute? She’s colored with Koh-i-Noor & Prisma pencils and blended with OMS. Her lighter pink layers are highlighted Pink Shimmerz.
Since these images are so cute and little, I decided to do a non-standard card and do a circle instead. My shaving cream background was a perfect match for Purely Pomegranate. I used my Nestabilities to cut the card shape and the Peony Nestabilities for the mat. The ribbon came from the Target $ Spot.
