{Thu} Technique: Bokeh - Club Scrap December Technique Challenge

Thursday, December 17, 2015

Hello, Crafty Friends!!!

Club Scrap has a technique challenge this month - Bokeh...click HERE to see and link your project!

I used All-Purpose Ink (plus some water) in two colors for my smooshed background:

Here's the paper...

After it dried, I trimmed a panel to size. Using a Honeycomb stencil, Brilliance ink pad and Tim Holtz's round Blender Tool, I inked the paper.

Then, just with the blender, I inked the paper to get some "circles"...

Finally, I just added an image and sentiment from the Navigation Collection stamp set. I added a mat and adhere to the card:

4. Simon Says Mon: Just a Pinch (just a pinch of All-Purpose Ink goes a long way!)

  4. This background is so dreamy! I love the colors you chose and the way you smooshed them together is fabulous. Adding the stenciling on top of that gave it even more depth and dimension. It is stunning! And what a great sentiment! I love both the look of your card and the feeling it created as I read those words. Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Leaving you with God's Word in 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 which says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:" Have an awesome New Year!
