Can I just say I love this card?? I found a video here on an easy way to achieve the Bokeh look on our cards and this is what I made after watching it. In the video, she used watercolor paints to wash the background, but I do not have any. I saw another card using dye inks for the background, but I tried that. but it was too light for the dots to show. I tried my Brusho Crystal Colours and this is the beautiful result. Watch the video for great tips on how to achieve this look. But, basically, you wet a piece of watercolor paper, and then apply your colors (I used purple and violet Brusho crystals, then spritzed them again.) After dry, apply white pigment ink through a stencil with different sizes of circles. You can easily create your own stencil with acetate and circle dies or punches. The smaller the dot, the brighter you want your inked circle to be. The key is a very wet inked white pigment pad. Let that dry and decorate as desired. I actually heat embossed the greeting (from Tim Holtz) before doing the bokeh dots and background. I completed the card with an ornament I made with an Elizabeth Craft Designs sticker, very fine glitter and copics.
I am entering this card in the DOTS challenge at Addicted to CAS, and the Clearly Christmas challenge at Curtain Call.
