November Stamp Your Art Out

I thought I had posted these, my mind must occupied with all things.... CHRISTMAS!!  My house is all decorated, clean & sparkly and the presents have all be purchased and wrapped just waiting for family to come in a couple weeks:)

The last card is a fun technique that I was glad to share with my friends.

In photography, bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light.”
It is pronounced “bow” as in bow and arrow, and the sound of “ke” when saying kettle.

  1. Using a circular pattern when sponging so that the colors don’t look “scratchy,” sponge Hello Honey ink on about 1/3 of the card then add Pistachio Pudding, followed by Wild Wasabi ink and ending with Mossy Meadow
  2. Stamp fern images with Mossy Meadow stamp some without reinking to add depth
  3. Use circle stencils to apply white craft ink with sponge – vary sizes and amount of ink on circles
  4. For a few last circles, use just the dauber to add more white bokeh dots using a twisting motion as to applied the color in a smaller size.
  5. Finally stamp a couple more fern images over top of the bokeh circles. This brings some ferns more into the foreground.
