Wednesday Walkthrough: Watercolor Wash meets Beautiful Bokeh Techniques with this Lovely Amazing You Card

I just love, love, love the font in the Lovely Amazing You photopolymer stamp set, and I thought it just went perfectly with this pretty way to get a background with the Watercolor Wash technique!  So today I just had to share this card with you, and I’ll have the video for the Wednesday Walkthrough posted too below! But for now, check out this cutie –  Smile

Tips for making this card:

  • Emboss your background piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Big Polka Dot embossing folder to complement the Bokeh circles you create on top of the tag.
  • Watercolor Wash makes an awesome background for your bokeh cards.  You will want to make sure you use an Aqua Painter NOT a Blender Pen, and you want to be using Watercolor Paper NOT your basic cardstock because you’ll be using lots of water to help let your colors spread on the background.
  • Stamp your sentiment on AFTER you have done your bokeh circles.
    HEADS UP!  This stamp set is one of the monthly photopolymer releases and so is NOT in a catalog.  It is guaranteed available from Feb 2015 to July 2015, so don’t wait too long to pick yours up!

  • Punch the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper and then wrap some of the thick baker’s twine through to make a tassel top.
  • Get that extra tassel-y top by untwisting the baker’s twine so all the individual threads are fluffed out!
