Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using the technique below.
For my card, I knew I wanted to keep a fairly monochromatic color palette and use my dragonflies. I started with making my base. There are a few ways to achieve the bokeh effect. I chose to use the sponging and craft ink method. I have also seen a watercolor method and a water drop method. Search YouTube for some great tutorials.
I sponged Night of Navy, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, and Pool Party onto a piece of white cardstock. From there, I die cut some different size circles into a piece of acetate to create a template. I then stenciled on craft white ink to soften the colors and create the bokeh effect. From there it was just a matter of deciding which dragonfly to use and picking a sentiment. I went with the fun multiple dragonflies and jazzed it up with a bit of Wink of Stella (hard to see in photo). For the sentiment, I pulled out my SAB stamp set Designer Tee. This little sentiment fir perfectly in my square Stitched Shapes Framelits. I added a layered piece of Island Indigo to give it some depth. Loving this card!
