Butterfly Birthday

Hello :)

Today I have a card to show you featuring a really cool marbling technique using shaving cream.  I had heard about this technique before but had never tried it, however after visiting the very talented Karen Thomas' blog and seeing the card she created I just had to give it a go! So thanks for inspiring me Karen.

I used my Tim Holtz distress re-inkers to add the colour to my shaving cream and was surprised at how easy this actually was to do! So easy in fact I got a little carried away and made lots of pretty backgrounds for future use. I just love the creamy swirly look that this technique gives you.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Cardstock: So Saffron, Early Espresso, Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Chocolate chip ink, various distress inks from Tim Holtz
Other: Die and impression plate by PTI, button.
