Bokeh with Stitched Shapes & Flourish Thinlits

This was one of the cards we made for the previous weekend’s class – Bokeh is a fabulous technique. We used one of the Stitched Circles from the Stitched Shape framelits; these lovely dies will be in next year’s catalogue but they are available right now along with some matching discounted stamp sets – check it out under ‘Stitched from the Heart’ on the Stampin’ Up! website.

When I’ve used this technique previously I’ve sponged the circles directly from the Whisper White stamp pad, but the sponge always leaves some ink behind to discolour the stamp pad, so this time I used the re-inker and it worked a treat!

I think the copper embossing and copper foil look really good with these colours.
