Seeing Spots?

Seeing Spots?

My Card Making Friends, 

I have a fun card to try today.  It is made using the Brutus Monroe Bokeh stencil and Alabaster (white) ink. This is a fun way to perfect your ink blending and use of complimentary colors. 

First thing is to decide on what colors of ink you would like to use together in creating this colorful background. Then set about blending the ink onto your card layer using the Bokeh stencil. Be sure and vary the size of the circles you use to give the background an interesting look. Do not be afraid to overlap the circles when blending the ink. Once the ink is dry and the layer is fully covered with the different colored circles go back over the layer using only Alabaster (white) ink. Again vary the size of the circles used being sure to leave some areas not overlaid with white ink.  Here too the circles should be overlapped.

Finally, layer the background layer onto a card base and add a sentiment. I chose to emboss in Alabaster a birthday sentiment on a die cut circle.  Added some fishtails and the card was finished. (Had to add a few clear bubbles to embellish.)

Have fun creating your Bokeh inspired card and share with us at Brutus Monroe Facebook Fan Page.
