It's super easy and is perfect for creating colorful Easter Egg cards!
All you need is some shaving cream (not the gel type), a few ink refills, a paper plate, paper towels (this is a messy technique, so be sure to have plenty of paper towels on hand for the cleanup), and something for swirling/mixing.
First, spray shaving cream, making a pile on a paper plate.
Drop a few drops of ink refills into the pile of shaving cream.
Using a spoon or similar, mix the colors into the shaving cream. Be careful not to mix it too much, so the colors don't become muddy.
For this sample, I used a plastic fork to create lines in the shaving cream.
Place a piece of white card stock into the shaving cream mixture, letting it set for a couple of seconds.
Remove the card stock from the mix,
and then scrape off the shaving cream. I used a credit card as my scraper, but a paper towel will work just as well.
You will now have an awesome background that you can use in your crafting!
For the Easter eggs, I first cut out several ovals out of Whisper White card stock using my Big Shot and Oval Thinlits die. I then placed them in my shaving cream/reinker mix.
Reinker colors used for the Easter Eggs were Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight and Wisteria Wonder.
To create a card base, I cut another oval out of Whisper White card stock. I placed the oval in my scoring tool and scored along the top at 1/2". I secured the shaving cream egg to the scored oval, folding the base along the score line.
So colorful and bright!
The Shaving Cream Background Technique is so versatile.
The possibilities are endless!
