Today's card continues the theme of the last one - bokeh. As mentioned in my last post, I saw a tutorial by Dawn Olshefski and you can see more info on that here. This time, I experimented with some really bright (put your sunglasses on!) colours and used the whole background on the card.
And I'm also entering it into the SUO Challenge to add "dots" ….certainly a few of them here :-)
I did warn you it was bright :-)
So to create the background I sponged both Calypso Coral and Tempting Turquoise. And once that was dry I used my home made acetate circle stencil to add the White Craft ink and again set it aside to dry.
The basket and ropes image is stamped directly on the background using the Momento Tuxedo Black ink and then I stamped on a piece of white card and cut out the basket and added with a dimensional. The balloon is stamped in Turquoise and the birthday added. For accessories - it is pretty hard to go past the gorgeous Calypso Coral Pom Pom trim I think :-) And some gold sequins for a touch of sparkle and a hot summer sky card is made :-)
