Bokeh Birthday


Hi everyone.  A bit of a different card for me.  I have been seeing lots of cards around using the Bokeh Technique, so wanted to try making another one of these fun cards.  My first Bokeh card is here and there's a little more information about the technique.  And, it looks as though I used some of the same colors (I do love orange and pink together!). :)

But, the colors for this card actually came from the Photo Inspiration of the latest challenge at ATS&M - #90 ...


And this card is also for the lastest challenges at CAS-ology (#90 - cue card:  Wet) ... and Paper Smooches - Anything Goes.





I taped my watercolor paper card front to a piece of cardboard to hold it flat, then I misted it with water.  I also misted my sponged daubers, but don't know if that made any difference.  I inked up a large and small dauber in each of the four colors and randomly "stamped" them onto my wet card front.  I used my heat gun to dry the watercolor paper and then stamped my sentiment.  Bright, cheerful and very easy to make card! :)








Stamps:  Sentiment Sampler (Paper Smooches)
Paper:  110 White Neenah (card base); 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper
Inks:  Black (Memento); Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  water mister, small and large sponge daubers



Challenges:
ATS&M #90
CAS-ology #90
