Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a card that is a CASE of this amazing card by TaeEun (rainbow in november). When I saw her card, I completely fell in love with the colourful sky and bokeh technique she used. I had to make one of these for myself. Thank you so much for the inspiration TaeEun!!
I sponged distress inks onto my card panel, starting just off center with pink, and moving outwards, trying to add colours that would overlap and blend well. Then I used the dot stamps from the HLS Mix Mash stamp set, stamping them with white pigment ink and then blending them out with a paper towel to soften them. To finish the background, I diluted white acrylic paint with water and then splattered (A LOT!) over top. :) I added a simple die-cut snowbank and white tree ... and then stamped the sentiment in soft gray so that it didn't compete with the background.
Stamps: Mix Mash and Mixed Christmas Sentiments (Happy Little Stampers)
Ink: Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean (Distress Inks by Tim Holtz); White Pigment ink (Hero Arts); Smoky Slate (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: Sponges, water mister, brush for splattering, Snowdrifts die (My Favorite Things), Swirly Tree die (Memory Box)
