"In photography, bokeh (Originally /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ BOH-kay — also sometimes pronounced as /ˈboʊkə/ BOH-kə, Japanese: [boke]) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light". (from Wikipedia)
I drew an outline with my Black Journaling pen, then added Outdoor Denim Chevron Twill Ribbon. I coloured some Clear Sparkles with my Shin Han Markers, then applied them and a Pacifica cardstock mat.
For my second "Bokeh" card, I created the background with Sunset; Pear; and Hollyhock inks. I stamped the sentiment with Sunset Pigment Ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. This time, I cut stars out of my transparency, then used those to create the "Bokeh" effect with White Daisy Pigment ink. Some of the starts seemed to disappear a wee bit too much into the background, so I decided to outline a few with my Black Journaling pen. I also used my Shin Han Markers to colour some Clear Sparkles. I used Sunset cardstock as a mat.
Stay tuned for another 2 cards with "Bokeh" techniques using hearts and dye based markers.
