Better Bokeh – Just Add Ink 242

I’ve been itching to practice my Bokeh – it’s such a lovely technique.  So, when I saw the photo inspiration at Just Add Ink this week, it gave me the chance to have another go.  Look at those colours!


This one is definitely better – but I need to remember that the Whisper White Craft Ink dries much lighter than it goes on, so needs to be boldly applied.  And not even Jet Black Staz On likes stamping on the craft ink!  The Blendabilities did a great job of colouring the rhinestones though, so they fit with the pretty colour theme.

This video (which doesn’t use Stampin’ Up! products but you’ll be able to use watercolour paper, SU! reinkers and WW Craft Ink) is a great tutorial if you want to have a go at home.  Kelly x

  1. Very pretty, I love your Bokeh card Kelly! I had the same problem with the WW being too soft when I first tried this technique too. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink 🙂

  2. Very cool Kelly! I love the Bokeh effect, but haven’t tried it yet. You’ve inspired me to have a go..:0) Great card!

  3. You have definitely captured the bokeh effect here Kelly. Love how the colours of your background change depending on whether they have bubble over the top. Thanks for joining us again at Just Add Ink this week.
