We have a new challenge at CAS Mix Up
My mixed media are Bokeh Technique, Stenciling, Alcohol Ink, Stamping, Die Cutting and Dry Embossing.
Nancy is our host this month and this is what she chose.
I wanted to try something a little different for my Bokeh technique.
I pulled out a piece of alcohol inked background from my stash and
used the Alcohol Ink Blending Pen that I had bought ??? years ago
to get my white spots.
I placed a stencil over the inked piece and removed the color
with the blending pen. I overlapped circles in a few places and
used several different sized circles on my stencil.
It worked even better than I had hoped!
Speaking of stencils, CAS will have a new challenge starting on January 4th.
The Bokeh technique is one of the many ways you can use a stencil.
If you're not sure how to do this technique, there are videos at
CAS Mix Up that can help you out.
Our Design Team has come back from Christmas vacation with
lots of fabulous inspiration for you. And we have a very talented
Guest Designer, Viv. I'm sure you'll love her card as much as I do.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
