Cure for the Monday Blues

Taheera can really get you hooked on her Cure for the Monday Blues challenge with her gorgeous inspiration pictures! I was intrigued by those pink bubbles and immediately thought "Bokeh" with sprinkles....



It is actually quite easy to achieve this. The only draw back is - its time consuming.... You make a watercolor background - very wet - needs to dry first. I found a wonderful blog by Paula - Stampinantics where she describes how to do just that. You can visit her and see how its done ;)
The die cut sentiment I tripled up -its by Simon Says, so is the stamped sentiment. Added lots of heart sprinkles




Taheera has a great give away on her blog - she is the leading lady at Winnie & Walter and they are also having a birthday bash! Go and visit!

Since I have a watercolor background I am also linking my card with Happy Little Stampers
Just us Girls - stencil (made the dots with a stencil)
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Something New - new technique for me and brand new Simon Says supplies :)
Snippets Playground - use a snippet (lots of them here - the hearts and the die cut)



      

Happy stamping!

I gasped, Cornelia ... the bokeh effect you've achieved is quite simply stunning! The crisp white stacked sentiment is fabulous against all that colour! Anita :)

Cornelia this is beautiful! I have been wanting to try bokeh for a while but not got around to it yet. Must do so soon! Thank you so much for the lovely comment on my blog too - as to resisting buying new stash I don't have the choice any more lol, our financial circumstances have drastically changed! It's why I enter a lot of challenges - chance to win new goodies! Karen x

Cornelia, Happy New Year! Saw this very happy feeling card highlighted over at the Snippets Playground, and popped over to get a closer look. It's a very uninspected way to do a Valentine card, and I love it! I've never tried Bokeh, but you surely have done the technique so beautifully. Love the tiny varied color hearts with the dimensional look of that bold sentiment die. TFS & Hugs
