Welcome to my blog. This Blog Hop is a circle of around 50 consultants. You probably arrived here from Lori's blog. Isn't everyone's work amazing? I love it.
I used the August SOTM "Framed" as the finishing touch on my first attempts at the Bokeh technique. This is done by putting watercolors onto White watercolor paper. (Coming in new Idea Book Sept. 1). Once they dry, you add circles using White Daisy Pigment Ink (Z2163). I made a stencil by cutting a variety of circles into cardstock and then rubbing the ink through them. [There are many videos on this technique on YouTube.] After dry, I cut them down to 5"x3.75". They are matted onto New England Ivy Cardstock (1282), Lagoon Cardstock (X5635), and Gypsy Cardstock (X 5757). The mats are all centered on 4.25"x5.5" White Daisy Cards and Envelopes Value Pack (X254).
The Sentiments on each card were cut from the newest CTMH Cricut Cartridge called Artistry. There are images that match our stamps exactly. You can tell which stamps have corresponding cuts by the red outline on the stamp image in the idea book.
