I have two cards to share today - both made with backgrounds created using the Oxidized Shaving Cream technique - discovered by Lydia over at Splitcoaststampers. She used it as the technique for the Mix Ability challenge on Friday. You will find her YouTube video here.
So here's the first card I made for Lydia's challenge. I kind of covered up my lovely shaving cream background by stenciling this wonderful sea turtle from Stencil Girls over it using black embossing paste - but he looks perfect swimming in the ocean I created - along with 3 little schools of fish (the Friday Free 4 All challenge at SCS was back to school!) The fish and sentiment are from S'Whale stamps and die sets from Ellen Hutson.
I'm linking my Sea Turtle card to:

Back to School
So then today's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers was a nail polish website, OPI - and I chose this Marbled Waves manicure for my inspiration.
I had made several backgrounds from the shaving cream technique so I used another one on this card! You get to see more of the lovely background since I just did some stamping over it - the hilarious sentiment is from Impression Obsession and the mermaid tail is from Inner Mermaid from Ellen Hutson. I die cut the panel with Pierced Feature Frames die from PTI (my favorite framing dies at the moment!)
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend - we are having intermittent sun and showers at the moment - but it's a hot summer's day!
