Bokeh Hello


AAA Game #72 is up and running with the theme of Try a "New To You" Technique.

First place winner will receive a gift certificate from our generous sponsor, Stampendous.

I have been wanting to try the Bokeh Technique for a while, so this challenge was perfect for making me seize the day. I used SSS Bokeh Lights Stencil to apply the circles with PTI Fresh Snow Ink and a sponge dauber over a watercolored panel. I decided to add small shiny gold stenciled circles as an accent on the card base using Nuvo Gold Embellishment Mousse. The sentient is die cut from Winnie & Walter's The Big The Bold & The Happy using PTI's Luxe Gold Adhesive Paper.


What technique have you been itching to try? I am so excited to see what CAS beauties appear in the gallery. Please go on over th the AAA Cards Blog and see what our wonderful Design Team Members have to share. Then try something new and link up to the Try A New Technique gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Stephanie! Where do I start? Nuvo gold mousse accents - swoon, I mean wow this is too pretty. The soft bokeh pane worked out beutifully and the pops of gold against it are just so classy. I think this is one my very favourite cards you've done . Now where's my credit card for that mousse stuff....
