Bokeh Effect


I was having stamping withdrawal after a hectic week of a second cataract surgery, a followup visit, hair appointment, getting ready for company over the weekend, working, etc. It simply didn't allow me any stamping time, so after I got home from work Sunday night...I had a chance to wind down and create a card!  I've been itching to ink up one of the new Reverse Confetti sets that arrived on my doorstep last Friday!  Jen del Muro has started up a new stamp company - Reverse Confetti - and I just couldn't resist some of her new designs!  A big plus is SUPER FAST shipping...here in 3 days after I submitted the order!  I'm using the latest Retro Sketch and combined it with a really fun Technique Lover's Challenge by Joan Ervin on SCS - to create a bokeh effect!  For some explanation and sample photos, check out Betsy Veldman's post HERE.

I stamped off 3 times using 3 different ink colors for the BG: Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay and Certainly Celery.  I used an aquapainter to add a little celery ink to the large feather, then fussy cut the image.  Some random bling and a couple of tiny pennants finished it off.  Thanks for stopping by...always love to hear from you!

STAMPS: Reverse Confetti
PAPER: Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, Pool Party, White
INK: Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise
ACCESSORIES: Corner chomper, Adhesive rhinestones, Pennant Trim die by Verve.
