Hi, everyone! It's my turn to share a Project of the Week on The House That Stamps Built blog and I'm going to show you how to create a bokeh background with stamped images. It creates such a soft look and it's pretty fun, specially if you don't mind doing a lot of sponging. Here are the things you will need:
-white ink: I used SU! white craft ink
-ink daubers or sponges
-white card stock panel
-stamps: I used:
Repeat Impressions "Snowflake Solid (lg)", "Snowflake Solid (small)" and "Christmas"
Start out with one of your ink colors; sponging it in several places on your panel. I chose Tempting Turquoise as it was my darkest color.
Sponge on your next color, overlapping in some areas.
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Snowflake Solid (lg)", "Snowflake Solid (sm)" and "Christmas"
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A"; Sweet n Sassy small snowflake
