Shaving foam marbling

Hello everyone :)
This is a great activity to do with the kids on a rainy day and will give you different results every time.
Shaving foam, distress ink refills, A5 cardstock, wooden skewer or cocktail stick, spatula, kitchen roll, shallow tray or dish.
Spray shaving foam onto your tray, smooth over and spread out to fit your A5 CS.

Add several drops of ink to the shaving foam. If you prefer not to use your distress inks with the kids, food colouring works well ;)
Using the skewer or cocktail stick mix around the ink to form a pattern in the foam.
Place the CS on top of the foam. Press gently all over to ensure all of the front of the card is covered. Gently lift off and place on a flat surface.
Place another piece of CS on top of the first and gently press together. Carefully peel apart. Allow these a few moments to dry.
Remove the foam from the CS using the spatula and kitchen roll. Place on a flat surface to dry.
The CS may curl a little whilst drying, to flatten place under a heavy book or use a dry iron.
When it is completely dry use as you would normally use DP.
For this card I used a Spellbinders circle Nestabilities die and my Cuttlebug to cut a circle for the image to sit on.
For this card I used it as I would normally use DP.
If you have a big enough tray or dish you could marble a whole 12x12 sheet of CS for a layout!
Finally, take a look HERE for a photo of my 4yr old having a go at this! He loved it :)
Have Fun!
