TMR - Technique ...

.... Well, so much for getting back on track! I'm late with my card for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#42 - sorry guys. We want you to use a fun technique on your masculine project - create a background using the SHAVING FOAM technique. Here's my card:

Inks: Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight
Dies: Winnie & Walter - In a Word - Hello Cutaway
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black


We have several videos on The Male Room blog showing the shaving foam technique - it's really simple and so much fun. Mind, it can be a bit messy. I put some shaving foam on a disposable plate and then added drops of red, yellow and blue ink, which I swirled with the blunt end of a paint brush. Then I inked up several pieces of white card. I like the bold swirls of colour on this piece and die cut the word hello in the corner. I adhered the panel on a black card blank and used Glossy Accents to adhere the small bits of the letters. Quick and simple! On the inside is a simple piece of white card for a message.

I used the colours from this week's Paper Players Challenge - PP#308. I'm also playing along with AAA Cards - AAA#71, where the team want to see blending. I'm not sure whether this counts, but the colours do blend!

Do visit our blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the design team. You've got plenty of time to join in the fun. The deadline for submission is midnight (BST) Tuesday 30th August (that's 7.00pm EDT). That's all for now!
