Yay! It's time for a new 2-week challenge at Seize The Birthday. This time there is no Toppings option. So...anything goes. Well, as long as it's a Birthday card, of course.
It wasn't easy to decide what technique I wanted to use for this No Toppings challenge. I'm seeing so many fun video tutorials lately. When I came across Dawn Woleslagle's video on the Bokeh technique...that made my decision easy! HERE is the link to her video, if you want to check it out.
I made 2 cards using this technique. I'll show you my second attempt first. I love how this one turned out! The first one...not so much. I'll include a photo of it at the bottom of this post though, so you can see what I mean.
Well. Good times!
Um...here is my first attempt at Dawn's Bokeh technique.
But I figured it was only fair to show you my experimental card!
Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you'll leave a comment. I lvve reading them!
