MCT Inspiration Wednesday

Hello! It's Inspiration Wednesday at MyCreativeTime. For my cards today I was inspired by THIS tutorial that I got in an email. I've wanted to try a "bokeh" card for a long time. I don't have white pigment ink, so I used white acrylic paint instead. For this first card I used picked raspberry, ripe persimmons, and squeezed lemonade distress inks. I wanted my bokeh to be bright! :) I used the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies for the bokeh dots and for my greeting circles. I used the Fun Lowercase Dies for the greetings on both cards. And the "2" is from the Number Fun Dies. And after I made this card, I had to try a rainbow version! :)
Yay! RAINBOW! :) For this one I used distress reinkers. I used worn lipstick, dried marigold, squeezed lemonade, shabby shutters, tumbled glass, and shaded lilac. Again, I used the Bunch of Fun Circles dies for my bokeh dots stencils. :) OH, and I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies for the card panels. This was super fun...and messy. ;)

  4. This is one Beautiful technique...I also got and watched this video and after seeing how beautiful your cards are, I know I have to try this also. I like your idea to see through the sentiment...I would hate to cover up too much of that beautiful background. Fabulous job!
