Maybe It Would Work For Shaving, Too!!!
"Her function is to sit and be admired"
-----Georgina Strickland Gates
What to do....what to do..... Little Peach and her mommy are still gone and I could get the house straightened up since hubby is coming home from a work trip.......or I could make another card. Ha. That's a no-brainer. I can always pick up the house!!! But when do I get to make two cards in one day???? :) :) :)
This card is for the MFP Tutorial Time on Speedy TV Challenge - Shaving Cream Background.......except I didn't have any shaving cream. So, guess what I used.
You guessed it, I used spray whipped cream!!! LOL... And it worked!!! Time will tell if the cats try to eat my card. Ha. (I actually was truly worried about this happening, so I rinsed off my glossy photo paper extra well with a generous amount of water!!)
I used (or possibly abused) the wonderful tutorial included on the MFP Challenge for making my pretty background, choosing refiller colors that I planned for stamping my floral images (Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick) and some generic green ink.
The two-part flower stamps are a prize from Serendipity (I love you, Serendipity!!!) and the leaves are from Technique Tuesday - Two Steppin' that I received as a prize (THANKS, TT!!!). I love the arty effect of these two-step flower and leaves!!! I masked and stamped the outlines with black Staz-On and used an extremely ancient (to the tune of ~20yrs old!!!) green Marvy Marker for the leaf color. Yep, it still worked after all these years of being buried in who knows what box!! I mounted the image on DCWV pink cardstock. I also layered a couple different ribbons and some pretty rick-rack and then used some of the same pink ribbon for the bow.
After I got the card together, I decided to try stamping a couple more flowers and popping them up on foam. I have two thicknesses of 3-D foam, so I made one higher than the other. I like the effect. As you can see in this photo, just about everything is up on foam!!
Hope you like my whipped cream background card!!! ;) Have a lovely day!!!
