Wow - long time no POST

I can't believe it has been over 2 months since I have posted. Way way too long.

Today I was playing with the shaving cream technique. I only have a couple of pigment ink reinkers (which don't work very well for this technique) so I decided to try to use my glimmer mists. Worked beautifully... I just opened up the spray bottles and added some drops to the shaving cream and I spritzed a little onto the shaving cream. I love how this turned out. I am working on a swap so I needed 8 cards. I used PTI's Rustic White as the base for the shaving cream and Melon Berry as my card base. I used the 2010 Anniversary set (Botanical-Silhouettes) from Papertreyink as my stamp set and Dark Chocolate and Melon Berry ink for the flower silouettes.




Here is the finished product.  What do you think?
