Today on Stylin' Stampin' INKSpiration, the designers are featuring the Bokeh technique. There are several variations of this technique and I went for a very simple version using stamps from the Happy Celebrations stamp set. Bokeh is meant to look light, airy, and dreamy.
I began by stamping the 2 sizes of circle stamps in Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette ink along the left side of the card and greeting panel. I made sure to overlap the circles, as well as stamp off to create lighter shades of pink. This gives the Bokeh depth.
I ran the Celebrations Textured Impressions Embossing Folder through the Big Shot. This creates a debossed greeting. Next, I took a blender pen and versamark ink refill to fill in the greeting. Then I sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder over the greeting and heat it with a heat tool until melted. I stamped "your day" in Basic Black Archival ink below the embossed greeting. As a final touch, I added a few enamel shapes to the front of the card and popped up the greeting panel with dimensionals.
You'll find a complete list of supplies at the end of this post. Thanks so much for stopping by!
