I Tried Stampin' on Tuesday

I'm trying a bit of Stampin' on Tuesday
for their Challenge this week which is A Sketch
and thought I would play my hand at the Bokeh Technique
again which is HOT at present.
I followed the Sketch pretty much but decided to cut
my background into three pieces and then
pop my Floral Image on top.
I used Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers & Aged Mahogany
for the background then sponged from the cut out circles with
Dew Drops Brilliance - Moonlight White.
The lovely stamped flower is from
Stampin' Up - Because I Care Set
and I inked it with both inks to give it a variegated look.
Added the required 3 gems in different colours and
finished with a sentiment from Gina K Designs
and crimped ribbon.
Thank You for stopping by and checking out my latest card.

Oh Ina, the Bokeh background you've achieved is masterful! It works so well with the hydrangea colors you've chosen. Just stunning. Thanks for sharing this with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!

Love love love this technique. My husband does it with his photography, but to be honest, I like it much better as backgrounds for our stamping. The colors you chose are awesome together!
