Marbling with Shaving Cream

I LOVE making backgrounds. Almost more than making cards. There, I said it. There are so many decisions involved when you make a card...
Anyway, the marbling technique with shaving cream is quite easy and tons of fun. A couple of weeks ago I made a card to enter at the current CAS Mix Up but when it was all finished I realized there was no stamping on it! Might not have been CAS enough anyway. I'll show it to you some other time. A couple of days ago I made another card with stamping.








Stamp: Sentiment (Verses Rubber Stamps)
Die: Avery Elle (stitched scalloped border)

Just used a strip of marbled paper to keep it CAS. The yellow dots are made with nail polish. Read about this months ago somewhere on this world wide web. You make them on a craft sheet and after they are completely dry you adhere them to the card with a drop of glue.
By the way, the colors of the background piece and the border are a little different in real life (nicer) but no amount of editing would change them.

  1. Love your card. The nail polish dots sound like a great idea. I have just been making some marbled sheets using shaving foam too. It's very addictive and the paper smells wonderful and has a super texture. Hugs Mrs A.

  4. Von der Rasierschaumtechnik habe ich auch schon mehrfach gelesen, aber ich habe keinen Rasierschaum, hier rasiert sich keiner ... *lach*. Nee, eher hat es mich abgehalten, weil ich es mir als ziemliche Matscherei vorstelle .. *grins*
    Der Effekt ist auf alle Fälle toll und Deine Karte wunderschön!!

  17. Super marmoriert! Hat sich Dein Mann nicht beschwert, dass Du ihm nun den Rasierschaum klaust? Ich finde das Ergebnis wunderschon, aber mir ist die Sauerei zu viel.....
