Karen H. here today and I am sharing a Christmas card using beautiful Crackerbox Palace stamps and a fun new technique called Bokeh Stamping. Perhaps you have seen photographs such as this one that shows the Bokeh Effect in photography:
I found some cards on Pinterest that show how to use that technique in stamping. I started with the beautiful holly and Joy to the World stamps from CBP. Then I added red ink using a finger dauber darker in the middle and then lighter with each generation of ink. I also added gold ink in smaller circles using a pencil eraser and again several generations of ink from dark in the center to lighter going out. The technique was easy and fun and makes a lovely background on your cards. I added some red sticker berries and layered the front piece onto my favorite paper: Kraft-Core Shattered by Tim Holtz for Core’dinations.
