House of Cards DT May Challenge: Bokeh Effect + Video Tutorial

Friday, May 01, 2015


Today I'm sharing my DT project for House of Cards and a Video Tutorial!
The challenge this month is to use the Bokeh effect on your projects...

Mynn, the challenge blog owner, has a written tutorial on the House of Cards Blog!
You have until the end of the month to link your project(s)!

This is my card - I used watercoloring and stamping to achieve the look for the background:

Do you see the shine from the pearlescent ink (biggest circle)?
