~ as long as you have a number somewhere on your project
then we hope that you will join in our fun at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight.

 Recently, I saw a beautiful technique on you-tube using the 'Bokeh' technique.  
It looked like something different to have a go at so I have used it here on this card.

I quite like it...

It has a very soothing feel to it IRL.
If I were to do anything different, then next time I think I would do it over the whole card instead of just a strip.

I don't know about you, but sometimes I find the white inks/sprays a little frustrating as they fade and take up the colour of the ink underneath...this technique is a natural way to use that to an advantage.

I will definitely give this another go...and maybe in another colour?

I hope you like my card.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Remember, stamping must be the focal point of your creation...and then just follow the theme and you are win with a chance of winning!

Fabulous card Dot, never thought of Bokeh in an inky way, but love this - especially how you've 'hidden' the face.

I love your take on the blues theme - the bohek technique makes for a super guy card. Thanks so much for playing along with The Male Room this week!
