Bokeh

Yesterday, I decided I'd like to create a card for the ABNH Bokeh challenge, the Guest Designer Search Contest for The Cutting Edge Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. So I combined all three of the challenges:




Here is the result:


I was inspired by the card in the middle at the bottom of the first graphic. First, I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper. Then I used the back of this stamp

to stamp my bokeh. Now I die-cut the hello from my panel and stamped the friend from the same stamp set. Onto the background panel, I applied some Versamark ink and heat-embossed the area behind the negative die-cut with black glitter embossing powder. Then I assembled the card, added sequins and die-cut a cute bow from pp to adhere for a little fun detail. I hope you like it!
Thanks for visiting!

Vanessa

supplies:
Hero Arts stamps, ink - Mama Elephant ink, die - My Favorite Things die - Tsukineko ink - MME pp - Pretty Pink Posh sequins
