Messing around with shaving foam

Well Suzz is back over on the paper artsy blog and she has been playing around with shaving foam and frescos you can take a look here....haven't done this for ages so as soon as I has the chance I popped out and got some and had a play.

My I forgot how messy this could be and had shaving foam all over the place. This is my first attempt. I used limelight, vanilla and brown shed frescos, although the vanilla did get lost, you can't see the limelight very well in the piccies but it is there.
All the stamps I used were from ID09. I stamped the back ground stamps in vermillion and crimson archival. then the man in black archival and painted in with limelight.
I used 3 coats of gloss glaze on the image to make it pop a bit more and mounted it  on black card..

For my second attempt I used mermaid,tinned peas and pumpkin soup. The background was stamped in sepia using BG5, and the music stamp from ESN07.

The birdcage was painted with mermaid a bit of sky (I think there was a bit of limelight on the brush as well) I then coated the bird cage with pearl glaze... The bird was painted with pumpkin soup and stamped in coffee archival using the music stamp from ESN07
I couldn't resist a little treasure gold and just added a bit of onyxite and green amber added a tassel..then mounted on brown card.

thanks for stopping by....
