I decided to jump on the technique bandwagon and give the Bokeh technique a try. I used a piece of watercolor paper, and "painted" it with an aqu brush and a mixture of reinkers and water - using shades of pink and blue. I spritzed it with water, and let the colors spread, blend, and completely dry - then sponged on white circles in different sizes. After nearly ruining my circle punches trying to punch through acetate to make the template, I decided to use post-it notes as templates instead. It worked! I added some white die-cut prim poppies and a punched butterfly in pool party blue, then added a LOTV white heat-embossed sentiment. The final touch was to add 3 tiny pink gemstones to the butterfly. I wanted the background to show through, but the white flowers seem to get lost in all that color now that it's finished. lol
I'm taking this over to the MFP Speedy Fox & Friends challenge #255 which is to make a birthday card with a butterfly.
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully we'll all be seeing some spring flowers one day soon!
