HHS #89- Clean Shave and a VIDEO TUTORIAL!!

This week, our challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is to use Shaving Cream, Crayons or Pastels. I am going to be honest... I wasn't excited.. AT FIRST! None of those listed are techniques I use. Ever. But, I took the challenge to step out of my comfort zone and I have fallen in LOVE!!!

This is a {Super Creepy and Bloody} antibacterial soap holder! The background was made with shaving cream and reinkers! Looks quite bloody doesn't it?
 I had a little skull from the skeleton stamp in the middle of this bow. Guess I didn't use enough adhesive! LOL!

 This box is made just like last years anti bac tutorial. Tomorrow, I have another one to share with you and I will have the dimensions for this box then.
 Pick Of  Poison skeleton! Love him!
 This eye ball anti bacterial soap can be found at my favorite favor store Bath and Body Works. I got it on Saturday and it was 50% off! Woot!
 Side view. Look at those veins! Creepy!
The edges of my paper are distressed with a razor.

Ok, so for the Shaving Cream. Messy? Yes. Fun? Absolutely! A "WOW" project? For Sure! I've made you a video so you can see how easy it is!


OK, so now no excuses! You know how to do it. So grab your hubby's shaving cream (or buy some in the travel section at your local grocer) and get busy!

Make sure you link back to us a Hand Stamped Sentiments so we can see what you did!

  4. Your box is way cool and so creepy!! My boys would love it. They tend to be gravitating to all of the scary Halloween stuff this year...especially the gross stuff. :) Your project is a cute way for us mom's to allow this stuff in our home. Hee hee!!

Hope your school year is off to a great start! I know you're busy though! Love stopping by your blog to see what you've been up to! Take care!
