Title Technique - shaving cream
Description This was so much fun!! I got to play with food dye and alcohol inks and the kitchen smelt lovely while I did it.
When I looked at my first card I saw the mountains and water so, hopefully, I have just made them a little bit more obvious.
HAPPY - marbled background straight on cardboard backing, white gel pen outlines of mountains and lakeside, yacht and birds stamped in Versacolor 'Charcoal', die cut word, fineliner for extra birds, 'Charcoal' edging
FLOWER - flower and leaves stamped on shaving cream paper patterned with Alcohol inks 'Patina', 'Purple twilight', 'Sunshine yellow' and 'Watermelon', leaves then restamped on paper coloured with shaving cream and food dye and hand cut then paper pieced to original, smallest leaves coloured with fineliner
GIRAFFES - background coloured with food dye, giraffes and strips coloured with the above Alcohol inks, giraffes stamped then die cut, details added with fineliner, words stamped in Versafine 'Onyx black', Versacolor 'Pinecone' edging
RELAX - I love paper piecing so this is what I did with this card. 'Girl on chair' stamped 5 times on different parts of my Alcohol ink patterned papers then: chair, trousers, shirt, hair and skin were hand cut and paper pieced, saying stamped in Versafine 'Onyx black', black marker edging
Available or Traded? swapped

These are all so great. And thank you for shring the details. These are all just beautiful. That paper piecing is so well done, and I love how you "found" the mountains in your HAPPY card.
