Bokeh Card

Good Morning :)
We have been on half term here this week and I spent 3 days clearing up my craft room! Still not 100% done but much better than it was and I have a large pile of unfinished works in progress ;)

This weeks Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge is CIRCLES! we have a fab prize up for grabs kindly donated by Stamping Boutique and gorgeous inspiration from the talented design team.
Hop over HERE to join us :)

My card uses a fabulous technique called BOKEH. It's a photography term which describes the effect you get when areas of the photo are out of focus. You see it a lot when you take photos of lights. 

I used Distress reinkers and a white ink pad to create the Bokeh effect on watercolour paper.

The large sentiment in the centre has been heat embossed with matt black embossing powder.

To finish I added a few sequins.
The technique seems to work best with darker colours, I tried a pale pink one which was pretty but the Bokeh effect was not clear.

Over to you now :)
Share your Circle projects with us HERE.
Have a great weekend thanks for stopping by
