Distress Inks .....

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is created by playing around with Distress Inks to create this Bokeh Effect background for my card.

This is a technique that has been around for ever and it is very easy to do.

Translated Bokeh simply means Blurred and it is a photographic term.

Have you ever looked at a film,  a photo or a magazine page when they have all the lights in the background blurred and running in to each other?   Well that is Bokeh

The sentiment is stamped onto a  Classic Circle and then mounted onto  Spellbinders  Symbology Frame

I have simply turned the orientation of the frame around for a different look

Around the sentiment I have added in some faux stitching and tucked some silver twine behind it

Then I dotted sequins around the card and mounted the panel onto black card before adding to my base.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  19. A very different card today - you make it look so simple - I have a feeling that if I try this I'll end up with a splodgy mess!

  20. Loving the effect of this Christina! As an amateur photographer, I am aware of the Bokeh effect but never thought to translate that into using inks for the same result! This is so pretty and effective and I love the colours that you used for this! TFS with us!
