Just Us Girls #243 - Wild Card {Shaving Cream Technique}


Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge

Sharyn here with this week's challenge.  Since this is the 5th Saturday of the month, it is a Wild Card week. My choice this time is a technique with shaving cream.  I love this technique, it leaves you with a very unique and beautiful background.  I hope you will give it a try.  To do this technique you will need some reinkers, foamy shaving cream (not gel), a paper plate, paper towels, a knife, and a straight edge like a ruler.  You can do a very subtle background with 1 or 2 reinkers or go more elaborate with 4 or 5 or more reinkers.   I'm adding a link to a quick video to help you get started.


We have had such a good time with our GD, Barbara Campbell, this month. Sadly, this is her last week with us.  We have enjoyed sharing her wonderful creations with you.  Thanks, Barbara!  Take a look at her beautiful card using the shaving cream technique.


Now for the rest of the Design Team




Thanks so much for coming by to check out our challenge this week!  Aren't the DT cards beautiful using this technique!  I hope you will find time to experiment and join us this week.  We would love to see how you are inspired using this technique!  You may be our next Chic of the Week!

Just a reminder:  If you win Chic of the Week in any of our May challenges, you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of July.

So glad you like it. I do too! It is kind of messy, but I usually make several sheets and put them back for future projects. Thanks so much for playing this week!
