Card : Bokeh Wishes

This is my first attempt at a Bokeh technique card; the youtube tutorials make this look easy but beware, dear reader – it’s not! 🙂

Day 22


  • I used a heavy water colour card and added Ultramarine, Brilliant Green and Sunshine Yellow colours to the card front and let it dry.
  • I used some circle dies to create a handmade circle stencil and daubed in white pigment ink on the card front to create a diffused look.
  • The sentiment was stamped with black pigment ink and the card was cut to just under an A6 size.
  • When I placed the card front on the card blank it looked too tone on tone so I created a black border.
  • First I outlined the beige card blank with a black Sharpie and then added black glitter on it by adding double sided tape on the Sharpied outline.
  • The card front was then adhered to the blank with double sided tape.
