Simon Says Stamp and Show challenges us this week to show our Messy Side. I have to admit I am a messy stamper and enjoy getting my fingers inky. The messiest technique that popped into mind for me was the shaving cream technique.
- Spray shaving cream on craft mat.
- Spray into the shaving cream glimmer mists (Blue, Yellow)
- Swirl glimmer mists together in shaving cream.
- Place cardstock onto inky shaving cream. pull up and scrape off excess shaving cream. I use my plastic ruler to shave my cardstock.
- Let dry.
I ended up smearing gold paint over the surface as an accident but it actually gave it a nice soft color. I then added liquid pearl drops around the edges that were silver. I waited for them to dry and sponged the gold paint over them.
I stamped the lace stamp using Versamark across the bottom and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I stamped the flowers using Versamark and heat emboss using gold embossing powder.
I stamped butterflies using Versamark on the same background paper. I heat embossed them using the gold embossing powder.
I decided I wanted the flowers to pop and thought I would try coloring them with white watercolor pencils and the effect reminded me of stain glass and I loved how it turned out.
I framed everything in black to make it pop and then added the sentiment using black ink.
