Sorry to bring this project to you
so late today, but I reckon it
is definitely worth waiting for!!
Dawn has made us this gorgeous
card and due to her problems with
Google this week, I didn't receive it!
Add to that my deceased laptop and
having to work on my new Apple one,
well, I'm sorry but we are here at last!
My problem was mainly due to resizing
the photos to put on here, I always
thought you had to make them small
in size which is what I always do
but I haven't done it here as I just
haven't worked out how to do it and it
seems to be fine!
Question to all you bloggers.....do you
worry about what size your photos
are before putting them on here??
Ok, so let's carry on here...
Dawn says -
I love circles and wanted to show some
ideas for creating a Bokeh effect with
your papercrafting. You could also use
other shapes like stars, hearts and squares
having a few different sizes of that shape.
To make your shapes either use a stencil
like I have or make your own from punches
and dies. It's addictive once you get going.
Another thing is you can use lots of the
shape or just a sprinkling of them.
Experiment and have fun.
My main card features different coloured
Pigment ink on a plain white background.
I've also shown two further samples where
I've made a coloured background using distress
inks. One uses a white Pigment ink for the
Bokeh Effect and the other White paint.
To make the card -
Take card blank and mask the edges off
edges with masking tape.
Stamp your images onto card blank.
Stamp again on paper or sticky notes to
make some masks. Place masks onto
Use circles stencil and Neon Inks over
the card blank to create your Bokeh Effect.
Move the circles stencil around
to fill as much as liked.
Remove tape and masks. Colour images with
Doodle a border with black
pen and add some white gel pen details.
Add some round buttons to finish.
