So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps - Bokeh Valentine

Hi Everyone,

time to think about Valentine's  Day!
I made a Bokeh background for my card.

Let me show you how I did this:

I used a Clarity Bubbles stencil and my brand new Clarity Brushes - you can get them in the store (click on the link) and started out with a light pink card base.

I brushed with various distress oxide inks

making sure I always move the stencil in a different position.

I used worn lipstick, picked raspberry and abandoned coral.

I took the Swirly Hearts stamp and my Misty and stamped it onto the upper half of my panel - I will be using the lower half for a second card.

I cut the panel in half and added the sentiment (simple Love You)- heat embossed it onto a small die cut black card stock heart. Added small strips of silver metallic Washi tape and glitter enamel dots.

Thanks for visiting!

Brilliant bokeh...never thought about using colored card and inks for bokeh but it works so well. Very satisfying. And you still have a piece for another card. I always knew your were clever.
