Stampin' Up! Bokeh and butterfly cards

Stampin Up! Bokeh card

Today's card uses a technique that I've seen on Pinterest a lot, but never thought I would be able to do. But, as you can see I managed it. And if I can do it, then so can you.

The technique is called Bokeh which usually refers to photography and the slightly blurred background with white circles.

There are lots of tutorials on how to do it. Basically you sponge the background in two or three different colours. Then, use a dauber or sponge for the white circles over the top. I used some vellum to cut different sized circles.

By making some circles whiter (by using more ink) you can give the illusion of depth.

I made two different cards, using butterflies for decoration for both. I have to say I'm pleased with my efforts and will definitely be making more. 

If you make any I'd like to see them.
