The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team has a Technique Challenge that we hope you’ll try out: Bokeh!
Here’s what I came up with:
For this card, I just masked the outer edges of the Whisper White to concentrate the color on the middle strip. Then I just sponged it with Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, & Pear Pizzazz, and then finally sponged little dots with Craft White. Such a cool effect!!
Here’s a picture of a card & did a while back:
Give it a try and enter our challenge! And be sure & check out the other beautiful ideas from the SSINK Team.
Don’t you just love him?!! He looks just like my puppy, Swiffer! I colored him using the new Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils. So fun & simple to use! You can use Blender Pens or Aquapainters to blend the colors. There’s really not a wrong way to use them so it’s fun to play around with them to see the different results.
Stamps: Bella & Friends, Designer Tin of Cards
Ink: Stazon Black Ink
Paper: Smokey Slate (5 1/2 X 11), Sweet Sugarplum (3 X 5 1/4), Soft Sky (1 X 5 1/4), Whisper White
Today we have a fun challenge for you to try… Masking or Stenciling!
I made a stencil by cutting out a tree using Perfect Pines Framelits Dies. Using sponge daubers, I sponged the tree with Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz. Decided it needed more color, so I reached for Rose Red. That’s one of those colors I forget about…but I just love it!
Isn’t that fun?!! I sponged the tree on This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.
The star is punched from Blossom Punch. I thought it would be cute with a bird, because of the music notes!
The bird was part of the Tree Builder Punch.
Which one do you like best? The star or the bird?
I’m soooooo behind! Ha! I’m afraid my friends are getting New Year’s Cards this year. But it’s all good. I’m just stretching out the fun.
It was fun to take a break this morning & make this card. I can’t wait to see what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team has made for this challenge! CLICK HERE to see more ideas!
One of the things I enjoy about being a part of the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is that I’m challenged to try different stamping techniques. Today we’re using the Baby Wipe Technique. Fun & easy- & I LOVE the results!
