Watercolor Bokeh

I've been playing a lot with watercolors this week.

I'm having a Customer Appreciation Class today.

Here's one of the cards we'll be doing.


This card  uses the Bokeh technique that I've been seeing a lot of.

It's really easy and a lot of fun.

I cut my own circle stencil to do the dots.


I hope my friends will enjoy doing this technique as much as I did.

Love the colours of your watercoloured background ... and the softness from the bokeh technique! I'm sure your friends will love doing this too. The elegant butterfly die-cut is the perfect match with the delicate look of the background. Hope you have fun with your class! xx

I'd love to know how you made that gorgeous background. It looks like beautiful wispy clouds. The Bokeh techniques I've seen always seem to use solid circle stamps but I like yours better. Can you point me to the tutorial you used or maybe do one for us yourself?
