Technique Twist Challenge 8: Bokeh

Welcome to our eighth challenge at Technique Twist...Bokeh!

I am sure everyone is familiar with the Photography effect of Bokeh.  It was so much fun to recreate that effect on a card and here is how I did it!

  1. I created a stencil by punching various size circle holes in a window sheet. 
  2. I scribbled various colors of gelato on  another sheet of acetate, and picked up color with a waterbrush, then stenciled circles randomly over watercolor paper.
  3. To add to the effect, I glued the clear circles I had punched out to a few parts of the background, and added a few highlights of Dazzling Diamonds.
  4. A Christmas sentiment makes this a very non-traditional holiday card!

Check out the inspiration from all the other Design Team members and join us in the Bokeh challenge!

  1. Very cool. I like the addition of the window sheet circles to give it a little sparkle.


Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
