Inky playtime

A few weeks ago I had a play with dylusions and shaving foam to make some backgrounds. I had asked about some of the wonderful samples on the Visible Image stall at Doncaster Stamp Magic, and Helen and Mark told me that this was the technique used. I couldn't wait to try it! Thank you for the inspiration, Theresa Morgan! You can check out her blog here. Both of my pieces were done using the shaving foam and dylusions onto copier card. I stamped the wonderful Visible image stamps in memento luxe ink and embossed with clear  powder. This technique bleached very easily, and I added a little pastel blue promarker to shape the eye. I also added a little white gel pen to help the sentiment stand out from the background. I gave this card to Meg.
I was a little more pleased with the second attempt, as I managed to make the marbling streak free. I asked a few people what they thought I should do with it, and the majority said 'Frame it!', so I did. Whilst shopping for Meg at Ikea yesterday, two square frames 'fell' into the trolley!
Not sure where to put it now!
Thanks for looking, and I hope to be round to visit you all soon.

  1. Lovely vibrancy Sal, Dylusions works well with the cling film technique as well if you are still of a mind to get inky.

  3. They look great, Sally! (give it to Meg to take with her, maybe?) I've never had much luck with the shaving foam technique, so congratulate you!

  4. I love this technique and the vibrant colours that you've created with it are fabulous. The first one would have been perfect for last week's LIM challenge. I like Helen's idea about the framed picture x

  11. Lovely looking inkyness going on here Sally. Good idea to frame them.

    I had a go with Brushos and shaving foam recently . . . exceedingly messy - prefer the effect you have achieved.

  12. These are stunning Sally, I love the effect that the dylusion sprays give with the shaving foam. Not done this technique for a while, I might just have to get the dylusions out and give it a go.
