Bokeh Anniversary

(click on photos to view larger images)

I made this anniversary bokeh card for my son and DIL. It was my second attempt with this technique. I used the same pink and orange Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays as I did on the first card, and added the pops of a bright yellow spray. 

The photos do NOT do justice to showing the sparkly colors of these sprays. Each one has a glimmery two-tone effect. I love this brand! ..... As you can see, I'm still having some trouble with the stenciled white pigment ink "bubbles" to turn out in different depths of opaque-ness (my new word) that gives bokeh it's illusion of depth, but that didn't stop me from turning it into a card anyway! I let it dry before adding the white pigment circles and then dried again overnight before putting the card together.

This is a close-up of the chipboard heart trio I painted white with pearl paint... and pink flowers with yellow pearl centers (YES, they really are yellow!)

I had to trim the original bokeh piece down to fit on the front of the card, so I added those trimmings to the inside. Stamped my sentiment and called it done!

Thanks for stopping by to visit. Please come again :)

Pat Smith, again! I am just getting back into stamping after a few strokes, and am thinking this bokeh technique would be something I can do and enjoy. I love the samples you have shown here, The colors are great.
Hugs, Pat
