Bokeh Effect

Hi Everyone…

Sharing a card that I made for CHA with you today… it features the Dramatic Eye stamp from Indigoblu /Limor Webber..

The finished card is highlighted with the bokeh effect, which seems to be rather popular at the moment, it is achieved by creating a template with circles, placing this on the card, then applying an opaque white ink over top with a sponge dauber… I do love the look.

I also used Indigoblu acrylic paints to create a brayered effect background, and added some script stamping to give it a nice wee background.

I also used some recollections textured cardstock that I had bought to make christmas cards, (and never got used lol) which sets it quite nicely against the black card base and layers.

As always, thanks for popping round.. see you all on Wednesday as it’s my turn over on the Indigoblu Blog.

Sarah 🙂

Dramatic Eye Canvas

Hi everyone!!

Long time no see!!  I have been absent from my blog since well before Christmas, but I am back now 🙂

Where have I been?

I have been very busy creating projects for Indigoblu, they attended CHA 2015 in Anaheim, California… very exciting indeed.. my projects were all there too, really really pleased and humbled that they were good enough to go.

Which leads me on to the blog post for today.     Indigoblu have collaborated with Limor Webber to bring a range of gorgeous mixed media stamps and stamp sets, and they are absolutely fabulous!

It is my turn back over on the Indigoblu Blog today, after the festive break and my project is using one of the new Limor Webber stamp releases, this one is called Dramatic Eye and comes in 2 sizes, I used the larger stamp in the canvas below.

and here is my project, it is a 5 x 7″ canvas, I tried to keep it monochromatic 😉

There are lots of bits n pieces used here, including Indigoblu cottage acrylic paints and alter ego flourishes

I also used the snow white metallic paint watered down in a spray bottle to create a shimmer spritz spray..

Well, that’s me for today, I will be back, with lots more things to share in the not too distant future, so as always, thank you so much for popping in
