Technique Blog Hop - Bokeh Stamping

Welcome to the Independent Consultant Technique Blog Hop!  You've arrived here from Cat's blog, but if you just found me follow the links and you'll see some fabulously fun artwork. 
Our featured technique this month is Bokeh Stamping. The artwork created by participating consultants will give you an idea of what you can and will create by using this technique in your art creations.   This technique is fabulous for card makers, Picture My Life, scrapbooking, & mixed media.   

I've never used this technique in my artwork, so this is my first attempt.   There are a lot of YouTube video tutorials available for this technique and I found two videos that have different ways of achieving this technique.   The first one I viewed used water brushes, watercolor paper, re-inker, and required a days dry time or a heating gun.   The second one used daubers, ink pads, and white cardstock.  While both achieved similar results I used water brushes and re-inkers on the Bokeh background for this card.

I used these Close to My Heart items to create my Thank You card.

  1. Value pack white card base
  2. Exclusive Inks:  Cotton Candy, Pixie, Pomegranate, & White Daisy. 
  3. Watercolor paper
  4. Springtime Wishes Stamp set & Thin Cuts
  5. Cardstock: Fern, Sweet Leaf, & White Daisy
  6. Embellishments: Grey Enamel Gems
  7. Other: sewing notion silver thread.
