The Craft Barn: Weekly Challenge

The theme for the 2nd weekly challenge at the
Craft Barn is Tando.
I only own a stencil from Tando, which made it easy to decide what to use. I've recently learnt about a technique which is called Bokeh and thought this would go well with my splatter stencil. Well, I liked the end result, but I'm not sure if it's really Bokeh :) 

Here is what I did:
I've used 3 different Distress Inks for the background, let it dry completely and then sponged white Brilliance Ink through the stencil. I've overlapped the splatters from time to time and again let it dry. 
Then I've stamped the Happiness quote from PaperArtsy on a piece of cardboard, which I die-cut with my Cuttlebug, coloured it with Distress Ink and layered it on a blue piece of cardboard. I've layered the whole card on another piece of blue cardboard, added the ribbon and the charm and adhered everything onto a white card. 
Thanks for looking :)


  1. Lovely page, the quote is funny (hopefully true...). Bokeh is a photographic effect with circles of different sizes overlapping each other.

  2. Oh I love that quote! Lovely project. Thank you for taking part in the Tando challenge.

  3. Great background, and that quote makes me smile!

  4. Bokeh or not, the end result is great!
