Patterned card stock - Anthology Bright & Breezy

The hexagons were left over from a scrapbook page that I am working on for my granddaughter, so I decided to turn the into a quickie card.

Bokeh Card

This is my version of a Bokeh style card.

Cold pressed watercolour paper
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Pads
- Peeled Paint
- Evergreen
- Brushed Corduroy
- Broken China
Water spritzer
White pigment pad
Make-up sponge
Circle stencils in assorted sizes
Rubber stamp
Stayzon ink pad

The background was done with Distress Ink Pads pressed on a  teflon mat and spritzed with water.

I tried using a white pigment pad for the circles but my pad was too dry so I substituted gesso and a stencil brush to get my Bokeh effect.

Happy Spring

For the first time that I can ever remember, March has come in like a lion and it has gone out like a lion.  Spring is here and I'm looking forward to warmer weather, hopefully it is coming soon.  I made this little card to hopefully speed up the spring process.

Patterned card stocks and bakers twine and sentiment are from Anthology by Lisa Bearnson.  The black eyes are actually Pearler Beads that I melt in the oven to create my own enamel dots.  I like to attach them with Scraperfect's Best Glue Ever.
