A more successful Bokeh!

Hello there! Its my turn over at Countryview Challenges today. The theme this month is bokeh technique - well I am glad to say that this time my card is more successful and my blurry circles look quite good.

I started out with a background of poorly blended distress inks - think I need some re-inkers!!! All blues from light to dark.

Next I used my fave aallandcreate stencil and added water through it to create a faux bleached bokeh effect.

I inked up my lovely stamps from Tracy Scott at Paperartsy and just stamped these beautiful butterflies....

Then mounted and outlined in blank and voila!

Have a great day!
Big hugs
