First Bokeh card

I've been seeing all of these beautiful bokeh cards on Pinterest and blogs and I decided to give the technique a try.  Bokeh is a photography term.  It is the look achieved when everything is blurred and soft dots appear. Anyway, here is my card.  I used Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry.  I have one more to make.

The technique is pretty simple but messy.  You sponge the inks in a random pattern on Whisper White cardstock and then sponge Craft Whisper White.  I used a template made from a transparency with cut outs from circle dies in several sizes.  On the top, I used a dauber with the craft white.  Let me know if you have any questions on how this is done!

Thanks for looking and commenting.  Your comments mean the world to me!
