Not Your Mother's Shaving Cream Technique (Video Tutorial)

This is a different version of an old technique where shaving cream and inks are used to make marbled paper. I have taken it to a different level using the shaving cream to "paint" the paper and even show a bit cleaner, easier technique to achieve the look of marbled paper. There are actually SO many possibilities for this technique, I need several videos. Unless otherwise noted, all products Stampin' Up!

This is the same technique I used to make the flag card I posted here on July 4th and the sympathy card I posted here.

I used the technique on watercolor paper for the sample below.  Doesn't this look just like regular watercolor? 

I used Whisper White cardstock for the sample below. 

I used Whisper White cardstock for the sample below. You won't believe how much easier this marbling technique is and you use much less of your shaving cream and reinkers. 

The stamp sets I've used for the cards above are listed below. The ink colors are mentioned in the video.
