PGCB #82 - Happy Birthday!

Hello!

I'm participating in the DT line up for the Paper Girls Challenge Blog with a Birthday themed card :)

I wanted to try something a little new that I've been seeing scattered across the paper crafting blog world, and that is the bokeh technique. But, instead of using watercolors, like most, I just wanted to use my inks.

To create my background, I selected four colors (inspired by the color challenge on the MFT Card Challenge blog), and sponged the colors into place to fill my base.

Then, I created a circle template by cutting various circles from a sheet of acetate, and sponged white pigment ink randomly using the template. 

Ya...needless to say, this is one of my new favorite techniques, and it's super fun to create. I will have to make a few more cards with this to test it out.

My adorable stamp is Birthday Wishes from Tiddly Inks. She was colored with the same dye inks I sponged the background with, I just used a blender pen to pick up the ink and color in the presents, cake, and dress. Her hair and body were colored with my Copics. I cut them out and popped them out (although hard to see in this photo).

I hope that you'll link up a project to the Birthday challenge with us Paper Girls. You have a little extra time this round to do so...but your entry needs to be posted no later than midnight, Sunday, July 5th (MST).

Thanks for stopping by to visit!
