Bokeh Background Technique

CAS card again for all the hearts who left me wonderful birthday wishes yesterday irrespective of different time zones... was really in gleeful state :) Thanks once again friends !!

Bok-eh, a term known in Photography but so new to me in stamping :) Yesterday learnt from here and wanted to give it a shot. Used the technique alone as, i lack few supplies mentioned there.

Diecut the heart from Itsy bitsy heart die and stamped on it using Ranger Archival ink. Applied glossy accents to the whole heart to get the glossiness...Just loving it :)  On a white cardstock, i just drew freehand heart in Spun sugar DI using koi waterbrush and created the Bokeh bg by simply stamping and stamping off with Spun sugar. Added the Stamped, glossy heart on the hand drawn heart with dimensionals. Though my glossy heart is with air bubbles and few fingerprints...am loving the way the lacy stamped heart pops :)

Sentiment is added on a diecut which is embossed on its edges with Black EP using Heat gun for that extra glam. Followed a tute from here. Few pink pearls are for final touch :)

Hope you like it too :)

This is lovely! Great job on the heart and on the sentiment, and I love the soft pinks with the pop of black. I took photography many years ago but have never heard of "bokeh," so I will make sure to explore the link you so generously shared. Thanks so much for playing along with us at IBS!
