Bokeh for Can You Case It

Someone at my favorite crafty place, StampNation, posted a bokeh card today.  I love bokeh, and I could not wait to sit down and stamp and create a bokeh creation.  The color scheme comes from the challenge at Can You Case It, where the suggested colors were purples, blues and neutrals. 

I used distress markers to create my card panel.  Colors used were Broken China, Stormy Sky, Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet.  After scribbling color on a watercolor panel, I spritzed with a lot of water and used a heat gun to dry.  It was still splotchy, but I used round stamps (they can be the back of a sentiment stamp that is round) in varying sizes stamped in white pigment ink. 

A super fun technique that gives great results.  I hope you find some time to create, and when you do, I highly recommend you give this technique a try.
