this looks like so much fun!
i'm thinking that using heavy watercolor paper would eliminate the warping.

thanks for the ideas-and your cards are beautiful!
Yeah, using thick paper would definatly work. And thanks!

Oooh I like the notebook, but I'm wondering if there is way to mute the colors more so that anything that's written on the page would be easier to read?

I was thinking the same thing. All I could think of was to take a bathroom cup, drop the dye into it, and add some water until it's lighter... and then mix with the shaving cream. Might have to try that.


Or maybe if you add more cream and less dye? Have you tried yet? Let me know. If not, I'll run out and get some shaving cream this weekend and give it a whirl.
Nope, haven't tried it yet... just got back from a mini-vacation. I'm not sure if more shaving cream would work, though...

Ok If someonesaid this i'm sorry, You can use gel just work with it so it's fomy. aslo more cream dilutes the color some.  I just did 3 things, Green is a strong color, so is blue( I have very blue fingers right now) does anyone now how to get it off skin fast?
Yeah, I thought it would work, but my shave gels are different colours, and I wanted a clean slate. The food colouring comes off with soap, cold water, and a LOT of rubbing with a towel. It goes away after a while... Does anyone else know a faster way?

Since this is so incredibly fun, I had to make more.

Here's another card:


How'd you get the top one to turn out that way?? I love how it looks silver!  What colors did you use??  I think this on a big piece of paper would look beautifull as art!
I used red, green, and blue. Yeah, it would look awesome as art.

I did something like this in 2nd grade.  We mixed liquid soap, water and food coloring together in small bowls.  Then we took straws and blew bubbles into the soap untill the bubbles were above the rim of the bowl, then we placed our paper on the bubbles.  You get marbled or tye-dyed circles on the card!

Now I have to live in the past and do this again!
I did something like that, too... I want to try it again! (But with the kid that I babysit. I don't feel like explaining why I'm doing that to my mom. She already thinks I'm nuts because of the shaving cream cards.

This is awesome!  i just bought some Barbasol on the way home for work.  I wrote some letters to my roomates this summer and I have been trying to figure out how to decorate the envelopes.  This is perfect!  Thanks!  Smiley

Saw this technique on Alex Anderson's show Simply Quilts.  She dyed fabric for quilts.  Very cool and MUCH cheaper than the fabric at the craft stores.  Want to try it for a bag.  Think it would look nice.  Can't wait to try your method.  Thinking I could make some cool school supplies (Book covers, notebook covers, etc.)

I did one with gel.  It was pink in the gel form but when I got it foamy, it was white.  Another thing I did was after the shaving cream dried and I wiped off the excess, I used Elmer's glue to write on it.  After it dried I carefully peeled it off and the writing was white.  I sent it in a swap I am in, so maybe she'll post it and I'll add it here.  BTW, thanks for this idea, it was soooo much fun.  I am going to do it with my stepdaughter.  What a mess that'll be!!! Cheesy

Candycanechild -- I did it! I made 3 quick ones tonight. I've posted them in order of creation.


Card #1 - FUN!

New colors!

Added a bit more color and swirled some more. Cheesy

This is too much fun. I'm going to subject my sister, mother and best friend to this easy cheap craft! They'll love it too.

So, I have a thank-you gift to send a friend's mom, and I wasn't sure what to give her.  So I'm thinking of a stationery set, hand decorated by moi.  Now, my friend's mom is a very elegant woman with simple, classic tastes.  So I was trying to think of colors she'd like.  And I thought, what if you swirled stamper's mica powder into the shaving cream?  Do you think it would stick, or would it wipe off?  Are there any silverings that aren't in powder form that might work?  I'm thinking, like a silver pen, broken open to use the ink, or something.  Thoughts?
