Bokeh dots meets dragonfly Dreams

I recently had one of my down line and good friend Victoria round for a craft session. Fact is we got very little done. It was hot and sunny and we sat in the garden putting the world to rights and during our four hour session this card is all we managed to complete. It is a mash up of ideas from the two of us and I do love how it turned out ... although not sure it looks like four hours worth ha ha ha.

Bokeh dots fell into my shopping basket on my last spree,  a fab set with two small background stamps in. Desperate to use it I quickly stamped away but was initially disappointed with the results. After consulting a team forum I was told to not go direct to the ink pad with this stamp. Rather, it is better to use a brayer or sponge daubers. At the first attempt of this I got great results.

Keeping the colours simple we have Whisper white, Coastal cabana and basic black. The card base was also embossed with layered leaves textured embossing folder which looks amazing close up. A simple two layer dragonfly makes the card special, this was cut fro Dragonfly Dreams thinlits.

I hope you enjoy this project and will give it a try. All products are listed below and are clickable links to my shop where you can buy at your leisure.
