To The Moon and Back - A Bokeh-ish Background

Hello!  Lisa here and today I'm sharing with you a fun background that is a little bokeh-ish!  I had fun using the Bubbly Stencil to create it and here's how I did it:

I started by cutting a slimline panel using the second largest die from the Pinked Slimline die set.  I used the Bubbly Stencil and started with the lightest color of Distress Oxide that I planned on using.  The stencil is not slimline sized so I did part of the slimline and then moved the stencil to the end of that being careful not to get ink over the edge by using a piece of paper as a mask.

I let that layer dry a bit and washed off my stencil and then went on with the next darkest color, positioning the stencil at a different angle so that the circles were overlapping in some areas but not completely covering the previous orbs.

Finally, the blue.  I was careful also to choose colors that would blend ok should the colors mix.  These three colors blend nicely with each other and didn't get muddy looking.

So fun, right??  I used a couple of the circles from the slimline die set and blended one of each of the colors onto them and popped them up onto the background.  Also added a few layers to the panel including my favorite... the largest pinked die cut from the set.

This bunny from the Somebunny stamp set was perfect for this one!  Perfect for a baby card or a birthday cared for your favorite little one!  I added some glossy accents to the stars and moon.

I just love how this background turned out and you can bet I'll be doing this again!

Thanks so much for stopping and hope you'll come again!

Oh!  And here is this for anyone keeping track:

Absolutely adorable. Such a fun card. What a great way to use stencils... at first I thought it was patterned paper. Love it. TFS
