Hey Valentine & Bokeh technique
"Hey, Valentine" is a Valentines stamp set from Stampin' Up's! Occasions Catalogue. This adorable Valentines card was made by a demonstrator in my group from Belleville, Ontario, Vicki Howie. Vicki used her Circle Collection Framelits to cut out the image and the mat (I love how she off set the image with the mat).
The cool background technique is called the "Bokeh Technique" (a technique borrowed from photography and all about parts of background being out of focus. Vicki achieved this look with white craft ink and sponging…Love it. If you love it too, make a date to come to Stamp-A-Rama as we will have some samples there showing this technique and quite possibly even a demonstration of the Bokeh technique.
I'll have more Valentine card samples all this week on www.stampwithjenn.com.
