Bokeh Silhouettes


Recently, I was round my fellow team mate in the Stampin' Up! community house & we were discussing about blogging. But, we didn't get very far that evening deciding what to do. So we then communicated via email & I put a few challenges that I came across recently, I even put the dates theses challenges would close - which she was very grateful for. When getting back to me Claire mentioned a couple that she liked the look of - so for the next 2 weeks there will hopefully be the challenges we are taking part in. So 1 here & 1 at Claire's. So here goes with the first challenge we are taking part in over at Paper Craft Crew:


I decided to combine it with the colour challenge over at Fab Friday


I have to say I found this very hard to do, trying to use 3 colours is a bit a challenge for me, I tend to mix a lot of colours together. So this is the card I created: 




I decided to use the bokeh technique to create my background - this is very much in! in the crafting world & it is so simple to create :)! You just get a piece of white paper, a sponge or dauber & ink the background with the colours you want to use, so to get the washed sort of look you get some whisper white craft ink & I used some vellum which I cut some circles into. Then with a sponge dauber I did some circular motions onto the vellum circles, I did this all over the page. I then also used the star mask to create some stars in the same sort of style but I used some silver encore ink (under the washi tape). Voila bokeh mastered!!
