Merry & Bright - MFT Hits & Highlights

October 30, 2018

For this month's MFT Hits & Highlights DT Challenge, we're challenged to feature products that include “merry” in the name or to add some brightness to our projects.

I pulled my inspiration from a few beautiful images I found on Pinterest, like HERE and HERE. I decided to add some brightness to my cards using the bokeh background technique. 

For the blue one, I inked a piece of watercolor paper with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink using a Mini Ink Blending Tool and spritzed a little water over it. Then I stenciled a lot of circles using the Basic Shapes - Circles Stencil, White Shimmer ink, Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink, and a sponge dauber. Once the inks dried, I added some white spots and twinkles here and there with a white gel pen. I stamped a sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments stamp set with Dark Brown Shimmer Ink and adhered the panel to a Smooth White card base.  

I made a yellow/gold version with the same technique. The inks used to create the bokeh background are Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks, and White Shimmer Ink.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for today. 

Thank you for stopping by.
