My online card class closes today and I wanted to post two more cards before they close the gallery. Today’s class was about stretching one stamp set to create four different cards. The technique that I used to make today’s card is called Bokeh Effect taught by Julie Ebersole. Its a photography technique which refers to blur or a blurry quality.
Take a look at the photo below for an example of that effect.
See how the background is blurry. That is the effect I’ve captured in the two cards that I made. The layers of glitter on the forefront blurs the background.
Take a look:
I had a great time playing with this effect. It was pretty easy to create and I can’t wait to try it with other stamps. Both of the images seen above are from the same stamp set. I have three other techniques to practice.
Please let me know what you think.
