Hidden Hugs

This week's optional twist for Darnell's NBUS challenge is a hidden or camouflaged sentiment, and I had just the right marbled shaving cream panel for the occasion, as well a NBUS word die (Hugs cutaway) by Winnie & Walter.

When I was creating several marbled panels using Distress reinkers and shaving cream. I thought it would be fun to try and create some rose shapes in the shaving foam, resulting in this fun and bright panel. I stacked my die cut sentiment with three layers in black and laid it back into the aperture, but not after I had stamped 'sweet' from the Big, the Bold and Friends (W&W) in black Archival ink.

My panel was die cut using a stitched rectangle die (Simon Says Stamp) and I used another SSS stitched die (Bundle of stitched shapes) to die cut a black mat. To finish off, I created a few dew drops using glossy accents, but these don't show up well in the photo.

SSS Wednesday - Anything goes


  1. Wow I reckon this is the best looking shaving cream background I have ever seen. They automatically looked like roses to me so you achieved the look perfectly. I am so having to have a try like this. and with the inset die cut - PERFECT
