AYSIChallenge133A color challenge…this one happens to be one of my favorite color combo!  I love blue and brown together.  Thanks to the As You See It blog for the inspiration.

Card details:  Shaving cream technique (see instructions below)…Very Vanilla and Soft Suede cardstock…Sky Blue ink refill…Sot Suede ink…Butterfly die…Tin of Cards stamp set from Stampin Up.

Shaving Cream Technique…Fill a paper plate with shaving cream.  Smooth out and dot with ink using re-inkers. Swirl the ink around mixing it with the shaving cream.  Press your cardstock into the shaving cream.  Clean off excess shaving cream with a paper towel.  Let dry completely. Finish you card off by layering or stamping on top of the “tie-die” back ground that you have just created.
