The other night I tried out the marbled paper technique Alexandra showed on Sunday. Found some shaving cream my BIL left here, but it came out as a gel. Filled the bottom of the pan anyway, figuring this wasn't going to work. The little box of 4 food colors in the cupboard is marked 45 cents--must be at least 20 years old! I dripped in some of the red & to my surprise the shaving cream began to turn to foam as I stirred with a wooden skewer. It made a LOT of foam--LOL! I forgot about going for the marbled effect & the red looked orange, but I dipped in a piece of cardstock anyway. Then I decided to add some of the blue & a tad of the yellow & colored some more cardstock. It looked kind of cool, so decided the pieces might work for flowers.
I used Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die & dry embossed the petals. The layers are attached with foam tape after brushing on Shimmer Spritz Gold. The leaves die is Penny Black & they are also brushed with the gold. MFT Fishtail Flags are sprayed with the same mist & are attached with the flag end slightly bent up. The sentiment is from Penny Black's edge to edge (inking just part of it) & is stamped in Memento Jumbo Java. Love finally using my tiny gold beads which make a great flower center. I'm also entering Penny Black's Sending Hugs & Pixies Snippets Playground. Hope you enjoyed the story behind this creation, even though it made for a long post. Thanks so much for coming by.
