Do you believe I made the background pattern on this card - its not DSP! After I created the background panel, I didn't want to cover it up too much so I have kept it quite simple.  I used ht Shaving Cream technique to create this marble look.
This technique is really easy- a little messy but very fun! 
  • Simply spray some shaving cream on a washable surface (old plastic mat works super)
  • Add some drops of Ink from your reinkers 2-3 drops per colour is plenty 
  • Swirl the colours around with a skewer/stick
  • Place your whisper white cardstock directly over the foam, press down to cover space
  • Lift and wipe or squeegee off the excess foam & ta-dah!
 Card measurements:
  • Aussie C6 card base in Rich Razzleberry cardstock (half A4)
  • Crumb Cake Frame 3-3/4" x 5-1/2"
  • Whisper White Panel 3-5/8" x 5-3/8"
     Be inspired with this colour combination, feel free to share and pin it!
