Shaving foam and Alcohol inks techniques..




Its our club night tonight and the two of the techniques we are doing is using alcohol inks and shaving foam...

For this card I've used shaving foam, Stampin Up re-inkers (you can also use distress inks) and just ordinary white non coated card..   I've embossed it to give it some texture...all the girls will get the die cut swirl and the Sue Wilson quilled flowers...so it will be interesting to see all the different colours and patterns the produce.  I've kept my colours quite soft...
 The Happy Birthday sentiment are Britannia dies....


My 2nd card has the Adirondack Alcohol ink background which is quite vibrant but looks so different from the shaving foam, the effects you can get with alcohol inks are amazing, using glossy card  and Adirondack:  Bottle, Caramel and Butterscotch,  also added some blending solution to give it that 'bubble' effect...

I will have more photos to show you of the other project  which is using die cuts and flowers only on the front of cards...

Two beautiful cards Anne. Love the colors of the alcohol inks ... so vibrant. It's amazing how the shaving foam created such subtle colors. Haven't tried that technique, but it's on my "to-do" list. Love the second card with the beautiful "bubble" look of the background - gorgeous. Loll xx
