My wonderful stampin buddy sent me a new stencil for making circles and I decided to use it to do the bokeh technique which I’ve not done for a while. After first using colour burst powders to create the background and loving the result of that I spent some time drying the piece so I could add the effect.
I found drying it on both sides with my heat tool prevented it from curling too much. As I’m impatient and can’t wait for something overnight, I immediately began adding the circles using white pigment ink. I just love how it turned out but it still needed something. I had the tiny butterflies (puffy ones) sitting around in a tray from ages ago and I added them. I deliberately didn’t want anything to stand out too much from the background so these work just fine to me. I mounted it onto some sparkly background CS and then onto the purple Card front. Added the sentiment strip on an angle and added some dots to the front so it wouldn’t be a stark white. There are speckles in the background so I thought tiny dots would mimic that a little.
