Dotty Angles Bokeh Effect

Today I learnt a new technique "Bokeh" effect. You gotta love Google!

"the effect of a soft out-of-focus background that you get when shooting a subject"

This was so easy to achieve. First I stamped dot's using the Dotty Angles stamp set with versamark, let dry. Then using your brayer use any darker colour you like and apply evenly over stamped image then wipe off with paper towel to expose dot's. 
Once dry I went back in and stamped random dot's in Silver to use as a background paper

I just love how it turned out!

 On this card I heat embossed in black then coloured with the Blendabilities.

Perfect Peacock

Oh My Gosh!!!

I received my BBB this week and couldn't wait to get stuck into creating with all the new products. 
When I ordered status said Perfect Peacock was on back order, well imagine my surprise when it turned up in my order. Yay lot's of fun to be had. 
Here are a couple of cards I made with this stamp without actually using it as a peacock.

This one I just used the tail part and used the dress up framelits as the top

On above card I reversed stamped to make wings
