This is another version of the Bokeh Technique that I shared yesterday. I CASED this card from Louise van Vuren. I loved her version of the Bokeh Technique using drops of water from an Aquapainter to create the effect. It really looks like diffuse light, which is the photographic effect where this technique came from.
I used Pacific Point and Rich Razzleberry ink and sponged it on my piece of Whisper White cardstock. I created a mask with two pieces of scratch paper to define the area where I wanted to have my band of color. I really added lots of ink to the cardstock to make a dark band of color. Next I took my Aquapainter (p.210) and dropped some water drops onto the sponged area of the cardstock. I also just touched the tip of the Aquapainter to the cardstock to make the smaller water spots. Make sure you let your piece dry thoroughly before stamping over top.
Next I stamped, with Black Stazon ink, the flowers from the Summer Silhouettes stamp set (p.108) and the words from the And Many More stamp set (p.20). I added this layer to a Black cardstock layer and a Whisper White card base. I popped the Black layer off the card with stampin’ dimensionals.
Just a Clean & Simple card with LOTS of interesting background effect all due to that fabulous Bokeh Technique!
