Bokeh - a first attempt

When bokeh first appeared a few years ago it didn't really speak to me at all so I didn't attempt it. But it seems to be having a bit of a resurgence, with lots of online and magazine articles about it springing up, so I thought I'd have a go.

I tried to cut an acetate template but my Spellbinders dies and Grand Calibur  did nothing but dent the acetate so I ended up cutting it from card instead. Then I used a selection of distress inks to make a bokeh band across the middle of a white panel.

I stamped the sentiment and added a matching black mat.

I am sharing this with Make My Monday - use words or a sentiment


  1. Great CAS card and Bokeh technique--great minds think alike just used this as background on my seahorse card-then covered the best bits up !!!
