Good Morning Fellow Stampers! :-)
I love playing with techniques! How about you? Learning how to do something new (or refreshing something "old") is so much fun! I love that Stampin' Up! takes the time to help us out and refresh our "tool box" on a regular basis.
Take a look at a the marbling technique in the Stampin’ Up! video demonstration above. If this technique is new for you – you’ll love it. If you haven’t used the marbling technique in awhile, this will refresh your memory and get you back to creating all sorts of beautiful backgrounds simply by swirling together shaving cream and drops of ink from Stampin’ Up! ink refills. Whooo hooo :-)
Now I have to admit I haven't played with this one in quite awhile. So I had a lot of fun giving this a fresh try!
If you follow the directions in the video, you'll find it's easy as pie!
And I like the idea of using one of our large stamp cases to hold the shaving cream. It really contained the mess and made it so easy! These are readily available in our store, and I'll put the product link at the bottom of this post. I also used the Thick Whisper White cardstock, and that was just perfect! Because it's a heavier weight, it handles the cream and extra ink well, and dried quickly and nicely.
I played with Mint Macaron, Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugarplum here just to see what it would look like. Pull out those re-inkers and try all sorts of combinations! I think that's the most fun!!
You can see my two samples at the top of the post. I'm going to sit and play somemore soon!! I might try less ink on the next one as this one I really laid on the "drops" - LOL
So that's your little Thursday Change-Up technique. Now go have some fun!! LOL :-) Hugs everyone!
Until Next Time . . .
