Bokeh background technique

This technique is easy and fun to do.
Sponge two or three colours of ink onto whisper white cardstock randomly covering all the white space.
Then make a circle template with window sheets cutting out a few different size circles out of it with circle dies or punches. Next step is using whisper white craft ink sponge circles over the top using your stencil with a few overlapping and going off the edge of cardstock too until you a happy with the result. Whisper white takes a while to dry so give it time to dry or use a heat gun tool to speed up the process and then stamp over the top wth momento black ink. Try a few different colour combos. e I used Hello Honey, Bermuda bay and Wild Wasabi.

Yummy New Butterfly thinlit dies from the Occasions Catalogue.

I'm loving these new butterfly thinlit dies from the new occasions catalogue (page 26) and the gorgeous papers painted blooms(middle card) they are so pretty and I'm finding the cute Bow builder punch(page 13) so useful for card making. For the backgrounds I used the stamp set Gorgeous Grunge and Kinda Eclectic. Sale-a-bration ends at the end of March so make sure you don't miss out on the freebies with every $90 order this month.
