|Okay here is a sneak peek of my card... as you can see it is inky, using the bokeh method, plus loads of die cutting.|
|So here I am getting inky .. used some Distress inks (Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles and Peeled Paint), with some memento inks - Bamboo shoots and Pear tart. One inked "ombre" with Ink dusters. Other, rejected for the moment, was smooshed.|
|The Bokeh part: 1.cut different sized circle dies for a template to
2. Use sponge applicator and chalk ink and various layers of circles assorted sizes.
3.You need base ink utterly dry avoiding not have greenish circles, ie no ink transfer.
4. It's better to dry chalk ink off as you go, so circles keep more distinctive.
This piece is the smooshed ink sheet with circles on it, will be used later. (See also my board BOKEH on pinterest for how to)
|Completed card. This is a partial CASE of this card on Pinterest - from Splitcoast Stampers, but couldn't find person's name.|
|Taken while sitting under the brolly (beach umbrella) - the view of Downunder's summer, to brighten your day!|
