Yes, it's supposed to be blurry...

Miri's turn to dare at Daring Cardmakers' this week and dared us with an absolutely brilliant dare;

I dare you to use the bokeh technique on your cards!

The Daring Cardmakers' blog has loads of tips and links to tutorials to make a Bokeh card and you can check out the DT's amazing creations here :) 

I used watercolours to create the background and then stamped circles using white ink to complete the effect.  Embellishments are a sizzix die cut scribble, Spellbinders die cut vellum pinked circle, American Crafts Sticker, Sizzix Craft Asylum leaf fromAmerican Crafts paper.  I cut the sentiment from glitter cardstock using a L'il Inker die.

I made this one too!

Same technique, with Heidi Swapp die cut sentiment, paper flower, fabric leaves, gold thread, Ikea washi tape and Docraft adhesive dots.

I didn't dare to use water colours ... but your beautiful card makes me want to give it a go. Your cards are stunning, Jo!
