A Bokeh Christmas

Yay - the sun is shining again and so I felt like celebrating by making a bright card.

I followed the method shown in Dawn's video here,  to create the Bokeh effect. I did change it a bit, by using the back of various rubber stamps and the rubber on the tip of a pencil, because I was too lazy to make a stencil. I would probably trie using a stencil next time, so I can control the amount of ink applied.

I began by creating the watercolour background with Distress Inks and  then I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts, Miracle of the Holiday and white embossed . When it was completely dry I used the circle stamps and HA white ink and stamped lots of dots. I brushed some perfect pearls lightly of the dots. Then I finished off the card by mounting the watercolour panel on a white card base and adding the die cut deer and sequins.
Im entering this card in the Hero Arts Holiday card challenge - Anything Goes category.

I'm also entering this card in the Simon Monday Challenge - 'O' is for - in my case 'O' is for orange or possibly ombre.


  1. Gorgeous! Love the rich colours and bokeh background which make your die cuts pop - great design :)
