Stamping Bokeh Backgrounds Two Ways

Stamping Bokeh Backgrounds Two Ways

Julie is sharing two techniques for creating bokeh backgrounds for an interactive balloon card today! The first method is fairly quick and the second takes it a step further, but both are easy and fun to create! The Scratch-Off Stickers are actually silver in color, although they appear black in Julie’s photography.

Tips:

  • Solid round dot stamps make this an easy background to create.
  • Stamping Mask Paper has edge-to-edge repositionable adhesive which works very well especially when blending over the top.
  • White pigment ink can be stamped over the top of blended backgrounds, or if you have a circle/dot stencil, you can load up a sponge dauber to stencil your bokeh shapes.
  • Pigment inks can take a long time to dry; use a heat gun to speed up the process.
  • Secure a penny to the inside of the card using Washi tape, for the recipient to use for scratching off.
