Primroses and Shaving Cream?????

Hello, dear cardmaking friends: It's time for a new theme for you to play with at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE and this one I know you'll like a lot because it's ANYTHING GOES, woohoo!! so I hope you find some time to create and join my teammates and me at our gallery.
This is the card I created for your inspiration.

The image is from a Power Poppy stamp set called Potted Primroses.
I stamped the image on a piece of white card stock with Memento black ink and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and a paper stump dipped in Gamsol.
Our theme is "Anything Goes" so I decided to try a technique that is a bit messy but fun to do, it's called the SHAVING CREAM TECHNIQUE, I love, love the beautiful designs you get with it, any combination of colors will look awesome.
The top panel was die cut with a circle die and propped with foam dimensionals on top of the colored panel, I adhere my fussy cut flowers on top of that also with foam dimensionals, the sentiment is from the set.
I added some pink mate enamel dots for a bit of "bling?"


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment and the little pot with flowers are from the set, the top lace from a retired SU set called Delicate Details.
So I hope you come by THE FLOWER CHALLENGE to check out what the rest of the team created for your inspiration and come join us in the gallery.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments always make my day.

Wowie zowie, that shaving cream background is amazing! Fun, for sure. It's been years since I tried this. Beautifully colored Primroses and I really love the matte sprinkles. So soft. Marcy just released the Primroses in digi format. Nice!
