Bokeh Technique

Good morning peeps told you I would be back today.......I have a beautiful image to share with you from I Brake For Stamps called Butterfly on Lilacs and have used the Bokeh Technique on this card.

I started out with a white piece of card stock and sponged on Stampin_up inks Orchid Opulence, Brocade Blue, and YoYo Yellow (pretty sure they are all retired) I cut 3 different size circles in a transparency using Sizzix Framelits laid over my sponged background like a stencil and sponged Whisper White into the circles stamped my main image Butterfly on Lilacs onto the sponged BG and stamped once on a plain piece of white card stock colored only the butterfly with Spectrum Noir on that piece then cut it out and popped it up on the other side of the card.....lastly stamped my sentiment Nature also from IBFS.......hope you have enjoyed my card today before I leave just want to let you know Della has been running a Deal of the Week might want to check them out as you can still receive the extra 10% off your order with my code SAV10BETH.
