Shaving Cream Technique

When I saw this technique I really wanted to try it.  But, every time I went to the supermarket I would forget to buy the shaving cream.  Today, I made a special trip to get it and I'm so glad I did.  It was so fun to do.  I have even done a few spare ones with scrap pieces of cardstock.  I think when I get the chance to have another go at this, I'm going to try some different colour combinations.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
The Outlawz Tuesday Challenge - Shaving Cream Technique
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Penny's Paper Crafty Fun - Anything Goes

I have used some scrapbooking paper for the background.  The contrast pieces for the background were made using the shaving cream technique (link below).  I used brown cardstock from Rosie's Studio for the matting.  The image is from Lemon Shortbread Stamps and has been coloured with copic markers.  I also used some grosgrain ribbon, a flower and a pearl.

The tutorial that I followed for the shaving cream technique can be found here:
