CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Bokeh Stamping

Hello and welcome to CTMH's Technique Blog Hop. This week our featured technique is the Bokeh Technique.

If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can start at the beginning with Melissa's Blog as she has the complete list. If you came here from JEN'S MESSY STUDIO you are in the right place. Now on to my project:

I chose to use the Bokeh technique to feature some of my Christmas photos because I feel like it just seems to suit them. The picture looks a little pink-ish but really it's Cranberry Red. I used CTMH's Water based ink pads to do the inking and the White Daisy Pigment ink for the circles. I also did a few circles with the cranberry ink just to add more interest and color. It dried nicely and turned out very good. My title is embossed with white embossing powder and heat dried. I could have also embossed the tree on the right hand page but I kind of liked the Bokeh to show through so I just used the regular water based black ink. If you have any questions just ask and I will answer! <3
