Bokeh Technique

By | February 20, 2016

Hi there

Today’s card uses a really effective technique called Bokeh.  Our Demo Support team based in Australia are wonderful and I’ve had a bit of help lately from Clare so I wanted to send her a card to say ‘thanks’ for her patience and help.

To create a card with this technique first sponge the whole piece of card stock in your chosen colour.  I’ve gone with Soft Sky, Pool Party and a bit of Island Indigo.  I then used a stencil I had created and applied the White Craft Ink with a dauber.  Leave it to dry for a bit before adhering to your card base.  To create your stencil grab a piece of scrap card stock (about 4″ x 4″) and then cut out a range of difference sized circles.  I used the three smallest circles from the Circle Framelits.  Place them randomly on the card stock and cut out.  Once you’ve daubered the first lot of circles move your stencil to another area of the card front and repeat the process until you are happy with the look.  The stencil can be used multiple times.

If you have created projects using the Bokeh Technique I would love to see your creations so why not take a photo and email it to me.
