Peace Bokeh Card


I love the Bokeh look on cards and could not resist a new set by Julie Ebersole for Essentials by Ellen (Hutson) called Bokeh Dots. I watched Julie create a card with the little dots stamp and a die cut in a class I took recently, and so I tried that with her Peace die. The words were not clear enough with just stamping, so I diecut the "peace" in white and layered that on the card. The bokeh background was made with lighter shades of blue ink and more circle stamps from the Bokeh Dots set. I added some diecut doves (Memory Box) and some sequins to complete the CAS card.

I am entering this card in the CAS challenge at Polkadoodles, and the Anything Goes challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.

I love this and love it in the blue colors. I first heard about the bokah technique from you and now I am going to try this some time myself.
