What a lot of fun this technique is and so effective.

Alyson Gibson said...

what an amazing effect. Time to raid my husbands shaving foam. Hope he won't notice. Does it matter what type of shaving foam it is? He uses a sensitive one.
Hope you had a good Christmas.
Mine was a spellbinding one. I only asked for spellbinders, and I got loads.

Looks amazing but what kind of ink/paint have you used?

Chrisspi said...

Really funky Sue. I've never seen this done before. How long do you have to leave ink to dry before you scrape off the foam with the ruler?

Hi Sue
Thank you so much for reminding me about this technique I used to do it years ago but forgot about it. Every time you do it it looks different no two cards are the same.

How bizarre is this?

Hi Sue your shaving cream demo is great one lady asked what cream was used when Iused to do it on T shirts I used very basic foam and as I am a decorative painter I would then use it as a background to paint designs on it. If using it on T shirts place a suitable sized strong card in a polythene bag to place inside the t shirt then just follow sues' instructions

I never ceased to be amazed at your beautiful cards, Sue. I am collecting spellbinders and this will be a wonderful background to add to my cards. What would I do without Sue Wilson and my Spellbinders.

Hello Sue, saw you demo this, what an amazing technique, will be giving it a try as I have a birthday card to make and this will be fabulous for the background. Thank you, I am just getting ready for your 5pm show.

Caught the end of this on C & C. Can you tell me what you used for the colouring of the shaving foam please. Looked lovely technique.

Debbie Hawkins said...

What would we do without you Sue,

I missed the C&C demo this tutorial makes the method clear. Do you have to use alcohol inks or is there something else that can be used instead please?

Just had a lovely time with shaving foam, paint, mica and sprays. Thank you so much for sharing this technique,Sue. Only thing is, I couldn't remember what ink you used, so I improvised. I also made a bit of a mess, not neat like yours. Such fun 'tho.

Just this minute done this with my Granddaughter, what fun now to get out the spellbinders and do some cards with our backgrounds, thanks Sue

linda said...

I did the shaving foam back ground and it looked great. Keep coming up with more things Sue.

Where is the "SUE" to answer all these questions? They started asking them, what, like it was a year and half ago? Did she never answer?
I am addicted to inks, never wanted to try this method, though. looks nice. I wonder who thunk it up to begin with? Shaving Cream? I have been experimenting on my own for about 9 months, and this never popped in my head, Even after I saw youtube tutorials on it. So, I can assume my questions won't get answered either. oh well, have a nice day. THINK INK?

Lisa Stokes said...

Wow wow wow Sue, how truly amazing, I really must have a go at this, will have to wait until hubby arrives back from the shop with the shaving foam.
Can't wait now.
Thanks Sue x

I have always wanted to try this. What do you use for inks and how long does the shaving cream stay on card before you scrape it off?
