Loving the bokeh look in photos?
I thought i would try to create something similar in a card, inspired by this beautiful card by Nichol Magouirk. Here’s the end result! I used some circle stamps with distress ink and stamped onto watercolour paper. I wanted to create a multi-tonal look so i didn’t ink the stamp every time, sometimes i used stamped it twice or three times before reinking (this is sometimes called second / third generation stamping).
To create a sparkle, I misted the whole background with some perfect pearls water mix – you can hopefully see a slight shimmer in the close up photo below.
The feathers on top are made using the silhouette and I used the same ink pads to colour them – i love how this gives a cohesive look to the project. The tip of the feather however is a silver ink pad.
I wanted to add another touch of silver so triple embossed a button and then tied the feathers together with twine. Pretty!
Have a great day!
