Recently I saw a card that I thought was done very nicely. The card was done by Laine from Dream Laine. She used the Bokeh technique. She inspired me to do a card using that technique also. The card I saw was done using aqua markers. I don't have any of them so I thought I would use some distress inks. I picked up my Tim Holtz Distress Inks and chose Wild Honey, Peeled Paint & Tumbled Glass (yellow, green, blue).
When I put down the blue it looked green. When I put down the yellow it looked orange. The green stayed green. I figured a way to dilute the yellow to actually get some yellow. All in all I think it turned out okay. I just had to spritz it a bit though. The technique does not call for that though. I think it added something to it.
I wanted to make the background part of the focal so I did not want to add too much. Recently my sister gave me a set of styluses to use with my flowers from Heartfelt. So I cut out the flowers and leaves (hopefully I will get the die set that goes with it soon cause that was a lot of cutting) then used my new stylus to bring the flowers to life.
I hope you enjoyed my take on the Bokeh technique and stop by to see Laine's card too.
Have a fabulous day!
