Enjoy Life with Bokeh Dots. Hmm, slightly odd title! Well not really, I have used two stamp sets for today’s project. Enjoy Life and Bokeh Dots, simple!
I am really enjoying using the Bokeh Dots set, but I know some people have found it a little challenging. Some while ago I did a project with a few tips on how to get great results using it, but I thought it was worth another look. This time I am using sponge daubers to apply the ink, which is a great solution if your ink pads are a little juicy. The new ink pads can be a little on the juicy side, and it is a shame to remove ink, so this is a great solution. This method also means, as in this case, you can apply more than one colour!
Having stamped the Bokeh Dots, I masked of the edges of that and then added some silhouette stamping with the Enjoy Life set. I love this effect, and it is so easy. The card was pulled together by adding a Basic Black Mat on a Crushed Curry Cardbase.
I really hope you give this a try, I know I will be using this method a lot in the coming months, especially with the other stamp in the set. I feel Christmas projects coming on with that.
