Hi everyone! As part of the LDRS Creative blog hop, today is featuring a new to me technique. I’ve seen this idea floating around instagram and I’ve have always loved it as an instagram filter as well: the bokeh effect. It’s actually a really easy one to create and I fell quickly in love with it.
I used some sparkle pens along with water to create a messy background. Here is where the technique comes in. All you need is blending tool with a foam pad and a white pigment ink. I chose to use Snowy White pigment ink because it’s so white. I used a large piece of paper and die cut some circles of different sizes. I used it as a stencil with the Snowy White ink to add white circles all over the background. This was so easy to create and it worked great for a background.
I stamped out a few florals, leaves and the main skunk from the Stinkin’ Amazing, using Raven ink, and colored them up with alcohol inks. I stamped out a sentiment from the set, that worked to ground the main skunk image.
I love how this card turned out and the technique to create the bokeh effect was so easy. I hope you get a chance to try it out as well!
Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
