Bokeh Technique

I have been seeing this technique around A LOT lately and have been dying to try it.

I finally got the chance and I think it makes a fantastic background – especially for male cards to liven them up a little.
I will definately be doing a class on this, so keep an eye out in my newsletters for further information.
You can sign up for my newsletter in the left hand side bar.
The bokeh technique is a lighting effect for photographs, but it’s very easy to replicate on a card.

I have entered this card into the Casing the Catty (CTC) Challenge. It’s my first challenge! You can find out more about CTC Here

have also used one of our Saleabration sets that you can earn for FREE with with every $90 purchase! How awesome is that!!
Happy crafting everyone 🙂 

Hair Gel Technique for Father’s Day

So with Father’s Day around the corner, I’ve been making quite a few Father’s Day Cards.  I had a couple of requests for this particular card using the Hair Gel Technique. It’s a great fun technique to use and looks amazing with our ‘By the Tide’ stamp set.

The colours I have used are Night of Navy, Cajun Craze and Old Olive, with soft suede for the anchor tag.  I found this technique on Brandy’s You Tube channel – here, and cased her lobster card. But with such a fun technique I had to try it some more…oh, and the card smells great too! Lol.
I could also imagine it used with ‘The Open Sea’ and ‘Sea Street’ stamp sets.
