I hope you all had a lovely Halloween. I took my daughter trick or treating in our local village with a few of the parents from school and she loved it. Trick or Treating in France is called "bonbon ou un sort" which roughly translate as sweets/candy or a spell.
My daughter came back with a bucket load of sweets. I am surprised she got as much as she did as this year there were loads of children out enjoying themselves.
Anyway back to a bit of crafting. I was browsing through the card challenge sites looking for inspiration when I came across the challenge over at Fusion.
What an amazing inspiration picture and I just had to give the challenge ago and combine it with a Spellblogger post.
I decided I wanted to use the inspiration picture and give the Bokeh effect ago. The last time I tried it I ended up using bleach as I didn't have a white ink pad.
I started off by creating my background by using a selection of blue and green inks and begin with the darkest colours around the edge. I then finished with the light blue in the centre.
To create the Bokeh effect I made a stencil using acetate and a small circle die. I then place this over my card stock and begin inking through the holes using a white ink pad and a sponge dauber.
I then added some die cut leaves using the Die D-Lites All Leaves die from Spellbinders. I cut some from foil card stock and a couple from some lovely pearlescent card stock that a friend gave me.
I then finished my card with a die cut greeting which is also from Spellbinders called Shapeabilities Simply said Phrase One. I cut this from black card cardstock.
Please check out the Spellbinders website for more details about the dies I have used.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day.
This card is also for the challenge over at Crop Stop.
