Coloring Down the Lines – bokeh

Hello Everyone!

Today will be a busy day for me.  I have my workshop tonight so I will be busy setting up for it.  I love doing workshops and seeing the ladies.  I love hearing how their lives are going and what they are working on at this time.  I would love to have your join us!

Today is the Coloring Down the Lines blog hop.  I chose the picture for this week.

When I went to make my card, I thought it would be fun to try a technique or fold that I had seen recently on the internet.  I looked at a few of my pin on Pinterest and decided to see if I could do the bokeh effect using these colors.  I chose Smoky Slate and Basic Gray to make my background.  After I had laid down my color I started adding my circles using the Whisper White.  After I had several circles on the card it was missing something.  I decided to see what it would look like if I added some Cherry Cobbler circles.  When I was done I liked the look.  It may not be a true bokeh effect but it worked for me.

I have seen this effect down usually with a large sentiment stamped on the card.  I decided to do something different.  I made a tag and punched some flowers to add along with my small sentiment.  Here is what my final card looked like.
