Raspberry Ripple Heart

February began last Saturday and today is the first Tuesday in that month and so that means there is a brand new challenge at Technique Time Tuesday and it is so much fun! I had really never tried this before, but the results are awesome-it's like magic! If you hop on over to the blog there is a full description/video of the technique - Shaving Foam Printing - you use it to create background for your projects, and whilst playing I made a few more backgrounds I'll definitely be using in the future.
Here's my card, inspired by February being the month for love!


Once I'd created the background the rest was simple, a computer generated sentiment, a key charm, three rhinestones and a ribbon, it's made.  I absolutely love it! It took a few tries to get the heart as I wanted, and I used two shades of pink ink. My foam cost 26p from the supermarket, and inks are fairly inexpensive too (especially if you did what I did and got together with a friend to share) so this technique won't cost a lot either.  I am going to enter my card in a few  other challenges too, I've used most of the colour palette from ColourQ and the theme for this month at The Cupboard Trilogy Challenge is love, along with Addicted To CAS
