More bokeh

After my earlier attempt I'm getting a bit braver with the bokeh. I don't think this is ever going to  become a favourite technique but it does make pretty backgrounds. This time I used watery colours to make a little ocean for my sea otter.

I cut it out with a wavy-stitched rectangle die and ran a fine liner along the stitching lines to look like real stitching. The sea otter and sentiment are made with a Lawn Fawn stamp and die set that I recently won in the Playground.

I am sharing this with
Alphabet challenge - use stitching (real or faux)
Less is More - water 
CAS mix up - Bokeh & stamping & die cutting

  1. I fancy it's a little "otter" than yesterday too!!! Har Har! Your LIM card is lovely and I love the use of bokeh in the background too


  2. The bokeh is a fabulous technique and watery effect for that adorable little otter and all finished off with that fun sentiment. Wonderful card for the CAS mix up challenge and you've done a fabulous job of the technique X

  3. Great work with this technique Jane! Love the beautiful colours of your watery scene with your sweet otter. This technique is wonderful for making water or "dreamy" backgrounds and always great to have in your collection of techniques. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
