I've read about this before, but haven't ever gotten around to trying it.  Maybe you'll be my inspiration!  Your finished papers look great.  I wonder how this would look using glossy cardstock?  Maybe I'll just have to get up and go try it!

I know a ton of people have posted, but I had to say how much I like these cards.  I am going to have my kindergartners make these as soon as school starts again!  I love messy fun things.

These were so much fun! I probably spent three hours on them.... by the end I was just playing, and i was putting lots of random things in the shaving cream to see how it turned out.

I discovered that if you a lot of color in the cream (so the swirls of color are very dark) and you sprinkle a layer of salt on top of the cream with a saltshaker before you put the paper on, it turns out sort of grainy and awesome looking...

great project! Grin

Hi, I'm new to the board.  I saw Dee Greunig do this technique on the Carol Duvall show a couple of years ago.  My daughter-in-law and I had so much fun with this.  We made all kinds of neat looking paper.  It's messy but a lot of fun.

Salt? That sounds cool. And it gives me an idea: glitter. I don't think it would stay put, but maybe it would for a little while... and then you could add some modge podge.

Ooh, pretty!  These sort of remind me of the swirly art things they sometimes have at fairs.  Do you think it would work for wrapping paper, or would folding it make the color crack and peel?

Food coloring usually comes in a package with four colors: red, yellow, blue, and green. It's main purpose is for cake decorating and other food-related things. For example, when you're making a Christmas cake and you want red frosting, you would use food coloring to get the white frosting red. I'm surprised you never heard of it! I suppose things are different where you live.

Ahh I now understand  Grin. I figured that it was colouring.. for.. food.. but it just didn't seem logical to me to use it for cards lol. Anyway, thanks for explaining! I'll go buy some, and make some sexay cards myself  Wink
