Around the House

Today Karen Gist is using an item
 found in many houses: 
shaving foam

Here's what she does:

Shaving Foam printing can be very messy 
but you can get some fantastic results!  
No need to spend out too much at all, 
have used a really cheap one.  
Though as it is smelly choose one you like!!! 
I sprayed it on my glass mat and then added 
2 colours of the Deco Art Media Misters.  
Using a pokey tool I drew lines up and down.
Press the white card on gently and lift.
Leave about a minute then wipe off the foam.
Don't leave it too long or the foam starts to dry.

Here is another colour way that I tried using the same sprays.
You can see here that I just let the ink 'drop' rather than spray it.

This is how the blue/magenta printing turned out.
It does spread a bit when you wipe it down but
 I like that effect.

This is a second lift off the foam.
You can get many prints in one session.

This colourway isn't as vibrant as the other one 
but is still useable.

The card feels lovely and soft!

I decided to use the paler of the blue/magenta prints for this card
 so that I could stamp onto it.
I stencilled the face with the matching Media Line Acrylic
and added some script stamping and some doodling.
The background is white card stamped with a crackle stamp

The orange/yellow print has been stamped on and some
doodling added.
I used scrap of the blue/magenta left overs to
add a bit of zing

Here's what Karen used:

DecoArt Media Misters
A4 white card
PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella collection
Impression Obsession Cover a Card Stamps
Tando Masks Andy Skinner 6x6

Has that started the creative juices flowing?  Has for me
will be getting down to it this afternoon once I've 
been to the supermarket ...............!

See you tomorrow; have a great day!
