Lawn Fawnatics – Challenge #115 – Let’s Bokeh!

Hi Friends!

Welcome to another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge!  This challenge celebrates the New Year – or any celebratory occasion, really!  We are using the following badge photos for inspiration.

I was inspired by the lights in these photos and wanted to do the bokeh effect – something I haven’t done in a long time!  Lawn Fawn’s Let’s Bokeh stamp set is the perfect set for this technique!

I started by working on a background, ink-blending lots of fun Distress Oxide colors. I used Picked Raspberry, Lucky Clover, Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon to create bursts of color all over a white panel, then used Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot around the edges to darken it.

Next, I used the solid circle stamps from the Let’s Bokeh set and used white pigment ink to stamp all my circles.  I did odd numbers of each of the sizes all over and used the same inked up stamp for 2-3 impressions until the ink is used up.  This gives different overlapped shades of white and allows some of the colors on the background to come through.

Next, I used some Gold Perfect Pearls and dusted some onto the main circles to give it a gold shimmer.  To finish, I embossed the sentiment in gold over black cardstock and finished by attaching some iridescent sequins.  I know this isn’t a typical Lawn Fawn card with adorable critters, but I think it’s nice to know you can get other looks from Lawn Fawn products too!  This challenge ends in two weeks on January 2nd at 11:59pm PST.  I hope you’ll play along – critters or not!  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawnatics Blog for more information on the current challenge and how to link up yours!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. Dear Caly – Thanks for showing this LF set. I did not know it existed. I thought you had used the Bubbles (Bubbles of Joy?) from a recent release. I love how you made your card. Again, TFS and a very merry Xmas to you and your family.

  2. Caly, this is a fantastic card! Again, I say that words sometimes get in the way or just fall short because this card is like WOW! It reminds me of champagne and it’s fizzy bubbles. Perfect fit for New Years!
