How on earth did you think of doing that? I'm absolutely going to try it. Looks like lotsa fun. Great tutorial! Thanks

But who sniffs greeting cards, anyway?

I have tried getting paper wet and then dripping watercolor paints on it to make tie dye, but it didn't work out so well ...the paper crinkled up pretty badly

I remember doing that with paper towels... and it worked well, of course not so good for cards.... but u could glue it to something harder i guess? either way anything tie dye related is fun  Grin

Hey,go ahead and try it out! I tested a lot of things before food colouring. I tried acrylic paints, which didn't work as well. It was too thick... the coluring workds best because it's so watery.

that is very neat.  how on earth did that thought occur i wonder? 

Well, Carol Duvall did something similar on her show, but they used all kinds of fancy inks and such... I had to experiment with different colouring materials, and found that food colouring works best.

If you want a more traditional marbled pattern, you can use a hair pick or a comb with wide teeth to pull through the shaving cream.  Though this tutorial doesn't use shaving cream, you could use the same techniques and patterns.

If I could pick one word to describe myself, it would probably be Fluffy Puff Marshamallows... or Homestar. Either one, really.  They both fit.

No, it doesn't mess up the pan. I used a regular cooking pan, and I hand washed it, let it soak over night, and then put it through the dishwasher. It was fine. I guess you could use a disposable foil one, if you're really worried.

Wow, those are beautiful! You can get the same results with my method if you're patient enough... and it's probably less expensive if you don't use the oils. Thanks for sharing that link! I'm going to try out their techniques one day.
