Bokeh Technique

Good day, Crafters! It is Shirley posting today. I have made a card using the Bokeh technique. This is the first card I have made using this technique.

The first step in making this card was making the background. I took white card stock and sprinkled Ken Oliver Color Burst in Ultramarine Blue, then misted with water. I repeated this step using Orange and Alizarin Crimson Color Bursts. There were a few areas that needed touching up, so I just used the colors I needed and spritzed again. In some spots I used more water, and let the colors run and mix, which was perfect to create the green color on my card stock.

Next, I made  a template using the Memory Box Over The Moon and Stars die. I took a piece of Clear Card Stock and placed the die over it to cut the template. Once the card stock was dry, I used the template over the clear card stock. I placed the template  where I wanted the stars and moons. I used White craft ink to sponge over them, using circular motions.

I layered my finished piece over gold card stock, and made the card base using So...Silk Glamour Green card stock.

I cut a star out of gold card stock to place over the main Bokeh star. I added a sentiment banner and added a gold star.

For the finish, I placed Silver Rhinestones over the card for the finishing touch.

Thank you for tuning in today. I hope you visit us again soon.
