I have the Happy Little Stampers challenge to thank for the inspiraton behind this card.
Their March challenge is to use sponging and one of the examples they quote which might be tried is Bokeh, which was new to me. So here is my first attempt at it.
I wet a piece of card before dropping splats of Aqua Tints onto it with a pipette. Once dry, I stencilled various sizes of circle all over the surface using Stazon white ink on a sponge dauber. I simply love the effect.
I added a Memory Box butterfly and the die-cut name of my daughter-in-law for whom this card was made. I would have like to have inlaid the name but the font I wanted to use is from Cuttlebug and there are various letters on one die making it unsuitable for this technique.
The panel was cut with a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp before mounting onto the card front with dimensional pads.
Thank you Happy Little Stampers, this is a technique I shall certainly be using again!
