I'm so proud of you

Hi Everyone! I hope your all doing well.

 I would like to share a card I made for my daughter as well as for the Cameo Creations Challenge. The challenge is "Back 2 School".

My daughters art teacher last year wanted her to take advanced art for this year, but my daughter didn't want to and didn't tell me about it. She found out her class schedule a week before school started and was not happy that she had art again. She wanted to work in the office or the library. I told to make the most of it and that at lease she had talent in drawing unlike me. On the first day of school her and about 5 other kids where called to the library and told  that they were put in advanced art because the art teacher felt they should be in there, but they did not have to stay if they did not want to. I was VERY surprised when my daughter told me she stayed. It is A LOT more work for her but I try to help her in any way I can. I even let her use one of my glue guns with crayons. Don't think the glue gun works any more but her teacher loved what she did. I did the printed paper in the background of my card with shaving cream and alcohol ink:) I had so much fun with the shaving cream and alcohol ink. You can find videos on youtube about this technique.

 Once you have shaving cream on your plate add a few drops of alcohol ink. Than swirl the shaving the way you would like it to look.
Put your paper on top of the shaving cream. 

 After removing the paper from the shaving cream wipe the shaving cream off with a paper towel.
Thank You for stopping by.
