Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here playing with some stencils, inks and shaving cream . I followed this video to make my cards. The shaving cream goes a long way so you can make lots of cards and backgrounds for your stash.
For the first card I used the bird stencil, I held it in place over cards stock and spread the inky shaving cream over the stencil. I liked the crisper effect from the stencil so I let it air dry before giving it a final wipe with a kitchen towel. I added some extra layers with stamps and outlined the birds and the branches with pencil.

For my second card I used the sunflower stencil. The shaving cream had less ink but still made a beautiful stenciled background which I will add a sentiment later, I love the soft colours of this one.

That made such beautiful, soft backgrounds. I'm off to watch the video.

Beautiful soft colours on both of them - so calm and peaceful. The first one doesn't need a sentiment at all - it's a lovely notecard as is. The second could be adaptable to lots of occasions. Two great cards to have on hand!

So soft and pretty. A creative use of the shaving cream technique… have never seen it put over a stencil before. The outlining helped the birds and branches to stand out.
