Yep! the title is correct, "I" have done a "technique" it was with huge trepidation that I took all the equipment needed, an old cooking sponge tray covered with foil, a couple of plastic gloves, hubby's shaving cream and some Adirondack inks, that I have had for years and years and not opened them AND a BBQ skewer! with NOT a computer in sight! (until the inside was printed.)
Squirt the foam, nice smell! add a few drops of the ink, not too much it may be too much! mix with BBQ skewer, OK that's enough, press the card into it, lift it off the foam, crikey!
OK now let it rest for a few minutes, then wipe the foam off. Mmmmmm looks OK, but not much colour, let's do it again - add some more colour, repeat previous steps. Mmmmm not as good as the video samples on The Male Room. Now what to do with it or even them?
This took more thinking than it did to colour the card. I used the lighter colour piece as the background layer and started with an embossing basket weave EF! Then die cut the circle, 3D the card onto some blue paper to match, added the sentiment, which I die cut twice out of the heavier ink card, a few tiny buttons that just happened to match, how lucky is that? Here's the result
I've also added piccies of the card, just to prove I did something so VERY alien to me AND have to say, the card smells gorgeous LOL.
