Bokeh Technqiue

One of the techniques we will learn at April’s Messy Techniques Week is called “Bokeh’ – it’s very popular in cardmaking right now. 

Bokeh is a photography term meaning the way the camera lens renders out of focus points of light.  Think of all those Christmas Cards you’ve seen with photos of a clear close-up of one ornament on the tree and the tree and lights in the background have a blur to them. 

Of course, some clever crafter came up with a couple different ways to produce a similar look of bokeh on the background of a card using our Stampin’ Up! inks and accessories. 

This card was made using watercolor paper, ink refills, Aquapainters and white craft ink.  It's a little messy, but quite easy and each one you make comes out so different!

This version of the Bokeh technique uses Whisper White paper, Classic Inks, daubers and White Craft Ink.
