Decorated Cards with Shaving Cream and Quilling

I put shaving cream onto a baking sheet and dropped two colors of food coloring, then gently swirled it with my fingers. I then placed the cards down into the shaving cream, picked them up gently and raked the shaving cream off. As you can see, it leaves a tie-dye effect onto the card and then I created some quilling to embellish them. I hope you like the variated swirls!



  1. Hi Jennifer

    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog! I'm afraid that tutorial link doesn't work any more because Papers and Pixels is now a paid-for, subscription only magazine and the free editions are no longer available. If you're interested in Photoshop and all things digital, however, you would probably find the magazine well worth buying. Check out

    Your shaving cream effects look great – just like marbled paper. I bet you had fun experimenting! It makes a great background for your quilling. I love effects like that.

    If you'd like to find out more about digital quilling, check out this link:

    Kindest regards
