Bokeh Technique With Die cutting

 Hi everyone, 
Just popping in to share my mid month DT post for Bizzy Bec's...
Okay here is a sneak peek of my card... as you can see it is inky, using the Bokeh technique, plus loads of die cutting.
So here it's getting inky. Cut a sheet of Neenah heavyweight white cardboard (it blends really well). Used Distress inks (Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles and Peeled Paint), with some memento inks - Bamboo Shoots + Pear Tart.
One piece was inked "ombre" with dusters, other was smooshed.
** I did do more inking on both after taking this photo.
Die cutting the bottom of the inked ombre piece.
1.keep die cut a base in fun foam piece.
2. squeeze
Tombow glue over fun foam die cut (whilst still in foam base).
3. Let it dry to get tacky, then you have time to position the top die cut well before adhering. Tombow becomes re-positionable after drying some, I guess this applies to all tacky glues.

  Double layered *the Memory Box Flower branch, *Pinpoint Circle frame + fun foam on Music die.
The Bokeh part: 1.cut different sized circle dies for a template to ink around.
2. Use sponge applicator and chalk ink and various layers of circles assorted sizes.
3.You need base ink utterly dry avoiding not have greenish circles, ie no ink transfer. 4. It's better to dry chalk ink off as you go, so circles keep more distinctive.

This piece is the smooshed ink sheet with circles on it, will be used later. 
Completed card. This is a partial CASE of this card on Pinterest - from Splitcoast Stampers, but couldn't find person's name.
Products used:
and Pre-order Memento inks.
Thanks so very much for each of you who've popped over..
.... and please do say hi to let me know that you've been by!

I haven't tried the bokeh technique yet. Haven't had any good white ink. Bought a new one two weeks ago and hope this will be the one. Green is a color I struggle to create with myself, but I love the color. A pretty design!

This is just beautiful. The bokeh is so well done and the greens are lovely together. I love the flower die and the happy birthday one as well. Great card!
