Bokeh Birthday


Grá O'Neill - Paper Learning Curve Bokeh: Lawn Fawn Cole's ABCs, Quinn's 123s, Circle Stackers

I've wanted to make a bokeh background for ages so the Lawnscaping Challenge and Yainea's card provided the incentive and CCEE Stampers the tools. 
I've blended distress inks on watercolour cardstock. Then stencilled white ink circles and daubed white gesso (faux acrylic) for more vibrant foreground circles, some gold splater and glittery sentiment to finish.
I love all the dimension created within the bokeh background. The diecut letters are layered and coated with glitter paste adding to the texture, sparkle and dimension. Just right to make a late entry for Virginia's View Challenge.

U.S. Mother's Day


Grá O'Neill - Paper Learning Curve: Spellbinders/Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch, Lawn Fawn Sally's ABCs

A Mother's Day Card for all the mothers out there! I think this Lawn Fawn font is perfect for doodling around and the Posy Patch flowers from Spellbinders and Heartfelt Creations help frame the sentiment. I've used some of the limited edition summer promarkers to colour the flowers and leaves with lots of stickles for shine.
