Bokeh Polka Dotty Doodah


This month's muse at CASE Study is none other than Donna Mikasa of Three Umbrellas.  Donna makes the most fabulous CAS cards - they are minimalist but with huge impact.  You'll see what I mean if you take a look around her blog.

I thought I'd try for a bokeh effect using a polka dot stencil.  And because I used four colours for the bokeh and one stamp for the image, I'm entering it into the current challenge at A Blog Named Hero to use four of something and one of something.


Distress Inks: Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, Milled Lavender, Bundled Sage
Sentiment: Hero Arts

ETA:  And I've just realised it fits the current CASology challenge, bubbly.  Duh!


And One Layer Simplicity Challenge#1 Restocking the Shelves.  We can always do with a spare birthday card in the stash.
