Today’s Cards are all about Bokeh. I have seen alot of cards on Pinterest and wanted to give it ago myself.
I have used a Watercolour cardstock for all 3 cards. For each base I have used varied die ink refill bottles. I have saturated the water colour card stock prior to placing any ink on the card stock. I have picked up ink with my aqua painter brush and placed the inks randomly on the card stock. I had a paper towel on standby if at any stage I felt I over saturated the ink which I blotted over the card stock.
Before I went to the next step I ran my heat gun over the water colour cardstock to ensure it was fully dry to work on.
I created my own stencil template with circle punches and circle dies. I have used Unicorn white pigment ink . TIP – the smaller the circle the more white ink I use and the heavier pressure I use.
For the sentiments I used a black permanent pigment ink to stand out in front of the Bokeh.
To embellish and finish the card black, gold, clear & pink sequins were placed .
Release Week !!! Today’s stampset is Australian Birds. The birds featured in todays card is the Rosells, Galah, Cockatoo and Kookaburra.
For the matting I have used a woodgrain designer series paper on the early expresso cardstock base. In the centre I have white heat embossed the sentiment from the Flower of the Month : Pansy.
Today’s easel card uses a of fun technique called “Blocking”.
To get the yellow background I used my clear block and place that directly on the daffodil delight ink and sprayed water to saturate the clear block which I then stamped on the whisper white cardstock.
To get the corner borders I stamped with the Fancy Labels stampset with daffodil delight to do tone on tone stamping.
For the rose I copic coloured in a deep red to contrast with the yellow. I added some light gray shading around the centre panel as well to soften the start white cardstock.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card. happy paper crafting peeps.
