Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh

Hi guys

Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh

A new technique today,  in my Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh technique class.

Do you know what Bokeh is?  Its a technical photographic term and refers to the light bubbles seen in photographs.  This is a great technique to try and its one that gets very messy.  So there were lots of inky fingers around.  My perfect kind of day.

I will be doing a photographic tutorial on this in a future post so you can see how its one.  (One day I may pluck up the courage to do videos.  Would you guys like that?)

I just love the colour combinations used in these cards.  Adore how the awesomely artistic stamp set is ideal for this technique.  The ferns and dragonfly are just perfect for this kind of card.

Today is Wednesday, so the new Weekly Deals are launched today for this week.  Click this link to see what’s there and place you order through my online shop.

Almost missed out on this one …..

you know those stamps that sometimes don’t inspire you in the catalogue.

The ones you think….. I’ll get that another time ….. Don’t!  

That’s what I did, and I didn’t get this gorgeous stamp until March, a month before it retired.    I’m really sad, as I would love to be able to use it more.  

Which stamp ……  Stipples Blossoms …..  It’s stunning and I know it’s gone, but I had to show you these.
  

   
  

        I just love this image, and have fallen in love with two step stamping all over again. 

See you again soon.
