Bokeh Technique for September Technique Class

  This Card was a big hit at my Technique class this month's class.  We meet the first Thursday of every month.  The tree stamp on this card is from the Festival of Trees stamp set.  Here are the directions we used on our technique card.

 Bokeh Night sky Technique-refers to a photography technique of blurring light to form globes of color.  Make a deep colored background with sponging or similar technique.  Stamp a focal image.  Build light circles using a variety of sizes and colors-large white craft ink circles are nice for giving an ethereal glow. Repeat stamping looks nice to give variations in saturation.
We used Mossy Meadow for the "grass".  I used a circle from the center of a medallion stamp that was meant to be waste to stamp the large circles and each of the ladies got their own applicator to take home of the small circle( it was a stampin' up pencil we used the eraser with the metallic ink.

The tiny dots were a stamp that came in the Festival of Trees set.  The sequins are in the occasions holiday book.
