Oldie But Goodie Technique

Sharing My First Bokeh Technique

Bokeh Card_Hello_FB7302017

I made a template with various circle sizes.  Then I used a mini sponge dabber to create the Bokeh look using the template and Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink.

The backgrounds on both cards is blended Distress Inks (Dusty Concord & Peeled Paint).


“Thanks” – Impression Obsession

“Hello” – Papertrey Ink


“A Warm” – Papertrey Ink (Wonderful Words: Hello)

“For All That You Do” – Papertrey Ink (Wonderful Words: Thank You)
