Sending You Hugs

Hello Guys,

I am super excited with this card I have made. It is inspired by a video tutorial I saw on Youtube. This is a super simple card and yet so different. The effect in the background is called the Bokeh Effect. This is a effect which we usually see in photography, where the background is blurred.

Now about the card, this is a 5*7 inches size card. I wet the entire card with clear water using a flat brush. Then I smooshed some distress inks on a acetate and mixed some water to it and then applied it on the card panel. The colours freely flowed and mixed to form a beautiful watercolour background. Now I covered the card front with a circle stencil and applied white pigment ink. Keeping it light at some places and applying pressure to get a dark colour where there are small circles. Then I die cut a rectangle out of a glitter white foam and a sentiment hello out of the same foam. I stamped the small sentiment below the die cut sentiment. I heat embossed a butterfly with white embossing power on vellum, fussy cut it and stuck it on the card front. Then I stuck the card front on the card base with white glue. And finished the card with a few sequins.
The supplies are listed at the end, do leave your comments if you like the card.
