Dawn of Wplus9 design studios demonstrated a fantastic bokeh background technique way back in August. You can check out the original blog post here or the YouTube tutorial here. I used her technique to create the background for this card using broken china, tumbled glass and pumicestone distress inks. I think sponged on Brilliance moonlight white ink through a stencil I made by punching and die-cutting lots of different size circles into a sheet of acetate. I know there is not much peaking out now but it really is pretty. Over the background I have placed the memory box orchard tree frame cut from basic white cardstock. In the tree I have placed a couple of sweet little birdies from a Wee Stamp set from Whimsy Stamps which came from with Australian Simply cards. The Fairy is another Wee Stamps design from Whimsy Stamps called the Silver Fairy. I think she is just gorgeous. The birdies and the fairy were coloured with copics, fussy cut, given some shape and stuck down with silicon. I put silver glitter on the fairy's wings. This is a super fine glitter called reflection from Sparkle N Sprinkle. It is so fine and glittery gorgeous. Once you glue it down it wont come off (I just used some PVA) it has an almost velvet texture. The foliage border behind the fairy is from another free stamp set from Australian Simply cards from Indigoblu. This was stamped and embossed on vellum with white detail embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle. It certainly does an excellent job of getting the detail, even the tiny little thin stalks and stems in this image. The sentiment is from Kaisercraft and it was stamped on a die from a Wplus9 set called circle stackers 1. Thank you for looking.
