SOS267 - Shaving Foam Technique meets Fox Builder Punch

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to try/learn a new technique. I always wanted to try the shaving cream technique, don't know why I didn't, so I finally did it.
You only need a shallow container filled with shaving foam, couple reinkers and several pieces of pre-cut paper. You can make a lot of different looking pieces from one "serving" of foam. Little messy, but fun, fun, fun!

I knew I'll want to use the background with my new Fox Builder punch from Stampin' Up! so I used brown, blue and green reinkers for my background. Sentiment is from Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the leafy embossing folder is also from Stampin' Up!

Challenges:
Sweet Stampin - no deisgner paper
Crafting when we can - use dies and punches
Polkadoodles - something beginning with F - fox
Cardz 4 Guyz - something beginning with F - fox
Retarte - anything goes

Ok Alica, the moment I saw your card on the page I got immediately curious as to what was the shaving cream technique, I honestly never, ever heard about it so, I went to Google and found a ton of videos on how to do this and I was blown away by the beautiful patterns you get with it, no two are alike, EVER!!! This is so cool and fun.
This pattern you showed here goes perfectly with your adorable little fox, she is so cute.
You got me inspired to try this, thank you!!
Hugs,
Maria.
