Watercolor Bokeh Technique

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

So I gave it a try and I like it! This technique is not very hard to do and the results are very striking. Split Coast Stampers has a video on how create this  technique called Bokeh. I am sure you can find many others who have done great videos as well.

Today I am going to show you the results of my experiments and the cards I created from them.

This example I used Old Olive, Marina Mist and Wisteria Wonder re-inkers.

This is the card I created from this sample, showcasing elegant Pearls
here is a look at the inside.

On this sample  I used Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz and Rose Red re-inkers.

This is the card I created from it using lots of Shimmery Stars, Sequins and Rhinestones

and a look at the inside.

For the final card I used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and touch of Tangerine Tango re-inkers. Actually, this was my first attempt and didn't get the watercolor paper wet enough to have the re-inkers run together like they are supposed to do.

Here is the final card from this group using Buttons and Bakers Twine

and a look at the inside.

Wow is right! I had fun experimenting with different color combinations and learning how to do this technique. You should give it a try too! It really does provide beautiful backgrounds and interesting looks using various ink combinations.

Stay tuned I have another technique I am going to try using DSP and a White Craft Pad???

Chat soon,
