Dandelion Wishes, Get Well Card, Bokeh Technique

Today's card was a fun find from Pinterest.  I wanted to try the "Bokeh" technique again.  I haven't done it in a while and I didn't seem to have any negative thoughts about it, so I assumed it was an okay technique to do! LOL

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black.  This card opens on the right.

I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Mint Macron card stock and textured it with the "Tufted" embossing folder.  I taped it to the card base.

I cut a 4" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock and sponged in some colors.  Here started out with Daffodil Delight, then Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point and Gorgeous Grape. 

The technique is to take white ink and sponge circles all over the piece.  I punched out a 3/4" and 1" circle.  The white ink doesn't seem to dry nicely so I did hop on over to my heat embossing tool and I dried the ink.  

Next I stamped the image from the "Dandelion Wishes" using black Memento ink.  I also used my heat tool to dry it.  I was sort of in a hurry.  Though I'm sure if I would have set it aside while I worked on the words, it probably would have been dry by the time I needed it.

I taped the stamped piece to a 4" x 2-3/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  And then I taped that to the card front.

I stamped the words from the "Dandelion Wishes" set using black Memento ink.  I die cut a stitched circle, a Basic Black scalloped circle and a Bermuda Bay circle.  I die cut them all at the same time.

I stamped some dandelion seeds on the word piece using Bermuda Bay ink that was stamped off three times. I wanted it very light.  I did make sure that the one seed was sort of straight up so I could add a rhinestone later.  I taped the three layers together and I set them in place on the card using Dimensionals.  

I tied a bow and used a glue dot to hold it in place just below the stem.  I added two rhinestones, one on the word piece and one in the center of the large dandelion.  

And for the final touch, I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card.  And that was it!

This was a fun and easy technique and a fun card to make too!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
