Crafty Cardmakers and More #138

Hi again everyone.  We have an awesome challenge this fortnight with Pamellia hosting and the theme is - Create Your Own Background.  So that means no designer papers - "what?!?" I hear you say!  There are a lot of great techniques out there so try your hand at some of them for something different.  Here is my creation.

I have used the shaving cream technique.  There is a great tutorial for that here.  It is actually really simple and all you need is some shaving cream (I raided the hubby's) and some re-inkers.  I wanted an Autumn colour palette being inspired by the lovely Autumn trees everywhere here in Melbourne. Once it was dry I stamped directly onto my background.  The cards smell awesome too!

Here is what I used:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree, Stampin' Up! Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink: Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip
Cardstock/Paper: White card base, Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip, Stampin' Up! Whisper White

I had some left overs so made a few the same to replenish my manly cards.  Here is a slightly different one.

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to go and check out all the wonderful creations for this fortnights challenge here.

I think the SU Lovely as a Tree is the most perfect tree stamp set. Wish I had it but I do have some similar. What an awesome job you have done on these cards. Love the shaving cream technique - messy but always great results and of course your craft room smells so nice lol
