I have always wanted to try the Bokeh effect, but thought it would take too much work and last week I made several ‘Thank You’ cards for customers who supported this blog via a purchase through my other endeavor.
This card uses our watercolor paper and inked it up with a sponge dauber with Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant ink. I made a circular template with all four of our circle punches out of a piece of a window sheet and used the Whisper White craft ink on a dauber to color in the bokeh circles.
On this card I used the daubers to sponge in some patterns on Whisper White cardstock, in no particular fashion. I was gonna say that this was my favorite, but I’ve changed my mind…they’re ALL my favorite.
This uses the watercolor paper also with less color in the background. I really like the way the large circles blended in with the Perfect Plum.
I wanted to see what effect bokeh had on our basic black cardstock. My inspiration came from night flights I took several times and the lights that glittered below a few hundred miles above the ground. I love it!
