my take on Bokeh and Easter ....

Hello there. Recently there has been a lot of artwork featuring the Bokeh technique. So I decided to try my hand at it. This is my take on it. These were inspired by a tutorial on Barbara Gray's blog.



For a change I remembered to take a pic of everything I used in the making, so it is easier to see what colours I used.



I started with 4 pieces of white card which I inked with the 4 colours of distress. I then used the large and small feather and stamped randomly using same inks. I then dried them well with a heat gun.



Next I stamped the branch and the small blue tits in black archival and coloured them with spectrum noir pencils.


Now I used a stencil called Jo's bubbles and inked snowcap ink through it. I know that usually people tend to do this before stamping main image, but I actually liked the effect this created.


Lastly I stamped the greeting and matted and layered on complimentary card.

All stamps and stencil are from Claritystamp.

I really hope you like my take on Bokeh, Theresa xx


I would like to link these cards to the following challenges:

Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Easter card
TTCRD - anything goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - anything goes
Sunday stamper - things that fly
