Another Re-inker technique for you to try!
During the TE Valentine's Release festivities on January 2nd I demonstrated how I used Taylored Expressions re-inkers with a water bath to create marbled card stock for my Mosaic Heart card (click here to read that Blog article). Today I'm using a can of shaving cream from the local Dollar Store and some of my favorite colors of TE re-inkers to ink-up a few pieces of sugar cube card stock. If you haven't tried this you need to! It can be kind of addicting 😁 Remember finger painting in grade school? It's kind of like that so get ready to get messy!
You'll need a plate or glass dish large enough to lay your card stock piece into, some shaving cream, some re-inkers that play nice with each other (don't use colors that make mud when they meet up). Grab some paper towels, a stencil pal and a few pieces of A2 sized sugar cube card stock.
Put a layer of shaving cream on the plate or into your container then add some drops of re-inker sporadically around, then use a chop stick or something similar to swirl the ink around - leaving streaks as shown below.
Lay a piece of card stock on top of the shaving cream and lightly press it down so the entire surface is covered. Gently lift the card stock up by a corner then lay it down onto your work surface.
Take the stencil pal and scrape the shaving cream off and LOOK AT THAT BEAUTY!!! Isn't that too cool!!! Now set it aside to dry.
Re-ink the shaving cream and repeat the process until you have enough pieces for your project or run out of card stock or shaving cream 😉. Here's a photo of a few of the pieces I created as well as the 'Craftermath' that was left behind for me to clean up.
Once the pieces have dried (it doesn't take long - maybe 10 minutes) have fun deciding how you'll use your little pieces of art! I have additional photos below of some of my projects.
Can't wait to see what you create Be sure to upload your works of art to the TE Fan Page for us all to see and feel free to tag me ... I'd love to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

I'll finish this one with a sentiment once I know who it's going to.
