The Challenge at CAS Mix Up this time is to use the Bokeh technique.
I have done this a few times before with mixed success, so this time I thought I'd try the technique using tissue paper as shown in one of the examples on the Mix Up Blog. My effort did not please me and ended up in the bin, so I reverted to another method this time using stencils, Distress inks and white acrylic paint. I was much more pleased with the result. I applied the colours through the stencils using both brushes and sponge daubers. To make the stencil, I merely die cut a few circles from a piece of vellum. The star die is a freebie from a magazine and the frame from SSS. The stamped part of the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.
Bokeh + Stamping + Die Cutting
It's also for the challenge at CAS Christmas Card Challenge.
