House of Cards May Challenge BOKEH EFFECT




New month which means New Monthly Challenge at  House of Cards, this time the theme is : to make a card using BOKEH EFFECT.





 

For my card I choose these Distress Inks: Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmelade and Worn Lipstick. I put the ink pad on the white paper directly and gave water after that. Once it was dry, I started to use my self made stencil  (made by circle puncher in 3 different size). I started with Fired Brick, took the stencil and sponged that ink. Last step was using my Hero Arts Unicorn PIGMENT INK (White) on the top of other colors. Here is my Bokeh Card:






I was waiting one day till the bokeh background dry, then I stamped and embossed it with black embossing powder the Dragonfly (my old collection of stamp set). The Thanks Cut Out I have got from Asha, dear Asha many many thanks for your lovely Goodies...I love to use your Cut Out its so elegant as sentiment :)

  14. Hi again :) I am from Norway, and live up in the North here. And my stamps sentiments are Norwegian Konfirmation text. I love to use craft paper and have a lot since I color with prisma color pencils and dont need any medium when I color on craft, just the pencils.
