Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a *Bokeh* effect card to share with you and a full video tutorial on how I created this card. In photography "bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by the lens" (origin wikipedia). Wow - well it sure is a pretty effect!
My card is very simple to create. You can use watercolour paints or even inks to obtain the background. To obtain the circles there are a variety of mediums such as white pigment ink or Stazon. You must remember to let your background dry before applying any stamping or inking. If you use a pigment ink for the circles this will need time to dry too. Without further ado here is my creation~
Watch here or on YouTube and remember to watch in HD and give it a thumbs up if you would like to see more videos from me :)
The watercolours that I used are from MamaElephant and I have the gansai tambi 24 set. Here are the links to the rest of my supplies from Stampin' Up!
Thanks so much for watching and I hope you feel inspired to give this effect a try.
I have added a couple of PAGES at the top of my blog that detail current *paper shares* and a *virtual Hostess Club* so check out the details, I hope they will be of interest to you. I will also be introducing a Marker and a Blendabilities Club in the near future :)
Our school transport is cancelled today in the Rhone Alpes, which means we get to play in all this snow ~
