Memory Box Poppies with Bokeh Method

Hi, Shaz here-  'tis the 15th of the month so time for another DT post for Bizzy Bec's! Thought we'd take another look at the Bokeh method
Here's a peek!
Bokeh method shown also step by step here and below
LESSON 1: dont get it too wet or it will dry blotchy like mine.. I used distress inks  on watercolour. 
LESSON 3:  when you die cut use a heavier quality piece of acetate as you can get, mine was, as was scrap from a lid, lighter you can trouble with mask. The white bubbles are overlapped and are done with chalk ink, it is better really if you dry between, I also did the different sizes it three (odd numbers -> better balance) of larger size then five (or so of next size and more of last size.
Have cut the two lots of prim poppies and arranged them on the oval die cut of Bokeh background. One bud I chose to use reverse side of bud, (ie turned it over so it faced other way). Shaped all flowers accordingly with shaping tool on mat.
Items used:Watercolour Paper

Spellbinder Elegant Ovals
Cottage cutz stitched oval
(fits the spellbinder ovals perfectly)
Impressions Obsession Greeting die set.

This background was made see here, on last month's post..applied bokeh background then added the diecut frame with Tonic scalloped rectangle die, Butterfly is Joy Vintage Fourish butterfly and the thanks is CB Olivia alphabet die . discontinued years back.
