The Case Study Challenge Blog is celebrating their 4th year anniversary with a blog hop and challenge to case one of their design team members card. I'm always looking at other card maker's sites & on Pinterest to get some inspiration....so I thought what the heck...I'll hop along & see if I find something interesting. This is the card I came up with casing Amy Sheffer of Paper Pickled Designs. She made her card using the Bokeh Technique ....never heard of it before...but it was fun to do & pretty easy! I wasn't quite clear on what medium they were saying to use, but it involves using water color paper, so I just used two of my Derwent Inktense pencils for the colors...Tangerine & Fuschia. I put the finished water colored piece onto some pretty pink card stock from my stash & used the same cardstock to die cut the sentiment frame. The sentiment is from Just Rite Stamps Celebration Labels One & the bow is made from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I really had fun trying this technique & I think the card turned out pretty good!! Here is the tutorial link that Amy had on her post demonstrating the Bokeh Technique. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!
