I made the colorful strip on the left side using the Shaving Cream Technique. Here's how I did it:
1.Spray a thick coating of shaving cream onto a cookie sheet or flat plate. Spread it out with a spatula so that it is a little larger than the piece of glossy cardstock you are using.
2.Put a few drops of re-inker onto the shaving cream. (Two colors work well, you can use more just be careful not to mix them too much.) Swirl the re-inkers around in the shaving cream with a knife.
3.Lay the glossy cardstock (glossy side down) onto the shaving cream. Press it down so that it is all coated.
4.Lift up the cardstock and wipe off the shaving cream. Blot it with a paper towel to remove all of the shaving cream. The cardstock will be dyed where the re-inkers were and left white where there was only shaving cream, creating a tie-dyed look.
