Technique Tuesday-Bokeh Technique

Hi Stampers!  It's the first Tuesday of April which means it's Technique Tuesday around here. I've jumped on the popular Bokeh bandwagon and this month I'm going to show you my take on this fun technique.

When I was learning about this technique I watched some videos by other demonstrators and they all involved ink, water and watercolor paper.  I didn't have any watercolor paper on hand (gasp!) and wanted to do this technique quickly and without the mess.  So, out came my sponges and ink pads and plain old Whisper White cardstock.  It's quick, easy and not quite as messy as if you were using water (you will get inky fingers though!).

I did a quick video so you could see how I achieved the Bokeh look with ink and sponges!

Give it a try....you'll be hooked!
