Bokeh Technique

I have seen the Bokeh Technique popping up all over the internet, and although my hubby is big with his photography and has used this technique in that medium, but it never occurred to me to give it a co with my card making.

So here it is ... and I LOVED playing with the Circles Mask from Stampin up! with White Craft Ink and  sponge dauber.

Begin by sponging your background onto a 10 cms x 14.3 cms piece of Whisper White cardstock.
I used a Stampin Sponge and each of the Subtles  Collection Classic ink pads to create your multi-coloured background.
Then use a little Washi Tape to hold the piece of cardstock down, and also tape down the circles Mask. 
Ink up the sponge dauber with White Craft Ink and work it into the circles. Keep moving the mask after giving the ink a chance to dry, overlapping the circles you have already formed to create a multi-tonal background.
Trim a piece of White Vellum to 14.3 cms x 10 cms and adhere the Vellum to the card front using Glue Dots
Use the Banners Framelits to make one large and one small banner from Marina Mist and Blushing Bridge cardstock respectively.
Dry emboss the large banner with the Happy Hearts Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Attach the banners as shown above.
Cut a Tea Lace Doily in half and overlap it at the top of the card front and stick in place.

Finally Stamp the BRIDE stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Black Stazon ink and adhere in place using a little Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue.
Attach the card front to an A6 White Card Blank,
Time for you htp have some fun ... go CASE away!
