Hello all ~ I haven't played along at the CAS Mix Up Challenge in quite a while, so when I saw that Loll and Bonnie are asking us to use the Bokeh Technique on our cards, I had to jump in :)
Meet Poindexter...isn't he CUTE?! He has a girlfriend too, so I'll be showcasing her in a future post :)
I started by ink blending the front panel with DOX ink, and after it dried, I used Unicorn ink and a stencil to create the Bokeh effect. Since a lot of kids are walking around with purple, or blue, or pink hair these days, I thought it would be fun to give him aqua hair with my Copic markers. I also used a small piece of an old washcloth that I soaked with '0' Various Ink and blotted his jeans to add texture to my card. Lastly, I added Pico Embellisher to the beakers and his glasses, and a few PTI Rain Stones...a fun little card, using:
Adding texture with Various Ink and washcloth
Loll, Bonnie and their DT have a lot of fabulous inspiration and a few videos explaining the Bokeh Technique...go check it out at the CAS Mix Up Blog, and play along, if you like...there is still plenty of time!
I hope everyone is having a great week ~ Thanks so much for stopping by, and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment...I really appreciate it!
