A Year of Card Techniques - January Hop ~ Shaving Cream Marblizing

Welcome to a Year of Card Techniques 2017: 

~January ~ 
Shaving Cream Marblizing

Another year of fun techniques is waiting for you. 
If you arrived here from Sandy's  you are on the right path. 
Don't worry if you think you missed a stop, I have listed the entire 
January hop later in the post. 
 Remember, we love to hear from you so please 
follow along and leave a comment.  
**There will be a special prize waiting for one of you each month, so come back each month and check out the great ideas 
and leave a comment.**

 Now on with the projects:

Medium Used:  Dye based Re-Inkers

 I collected the Shaving Cream, cardstock and re-inkers and began to play..  At first I was a little worried as it did not look like it was going well..  So I picked out some coordinating cardstock colors and began to come up with a card idea.

 So when I first starting looking at this one with the Navy, Plum & white, I instantly thought of Mothers Day..  Could also make a really nice Birthday Card as well.  As you can see I chose the Mothers Day option.  

For the second one that had the Plum and Sea Glass colors I instantly thought of Valentines..  Our Sea Glass glitter paper added a nice bit of sparkle and Love the compliments from our Sugar Rush packs to quickly finish out the card.  

Tips and tricks to this technique and more about my projects will follow here on 
my blog next week
