Today's background masculine cards were created using the 'Shaving Foam Marbling' technique. Using inexpensive shaving cream and ink refills created a cool background. Fill your paper plate with shaving cream. Use a stick to smooth the shaving cream out a bit. Then add several drops of each of your re-inker colors. Mix shaving cream and re-inker in a swirling motion. Don't blend to much, you want the marbling affect.
Press your card stock into the shaving cream. Make sure your putting the glossy side down and its getting completely covered.Pull your card stock out of the shaving cream and wipe off with a paper towel. Lay another piece of card stock on top of the one covered in shaving cream. Press together, then pull apart giving you two shaving cream coated pieces of card stock. Let dry. I love this simple technique. It worked very well for these stamped images.
