Bokeh Background Technique

Good Morning Crafters

Today we are sharing Rachel's tutorial with you all.

Snowdrop Decoupage Stamp Set

Inkadinks Vintage

Bubble Background Stencil

Add inkadinks to craft mat and paint directly onto card - Cocoa is the first ink

Then add other colours in this case gingerbread and aubergine.

Using a make up sponge apply small quantities of inkadinks through the bubbles in the stencil, in this instance aubergine. 

You continue applying until you are happy with the amount of bubbles you have on the background.

Repeat the process using a white ink pad and blending tool/foam. In this instance brilliance white ink pad has been used.
 Then add a few crescent glints using a white pen to help create a 3D effect with the circles.

Stamp the snowdrop image onto white card and paint with inkadinks. 
Mount this into the Bokeh background. 
This tutorial shows how versatile the inkadinks are!

Thank you for stopping by Today and we hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
