I inked up my Bokeh Dots stamp for the first time.  I have read where some people had difficulty getting a good impression.  I used the Stamparatus and a sponge brayer to allow me to ink it extra times if necessary.  I noticed as I did this that it went from very light and not really clear dots to pretty vibrant.  I believe either look would be good.  I wanted to show the dots fairly well, so I inked it several times.  After all of that I was very happy with the outcome.  Then I totally changed the direction I was headed with the card! LOL!  And ended up with this.

 

Stampin' Up!, Bokeh Dots, Many Blessings, Nature's Poem, Jackie Beers

Bokeh Dots, 148113

 

I know that the Bokeh is an unexpected background, and color for that matter, to go with a harvest set, but that is where I ended up.

the sentiment and the harvest crate is from the Million Dollar set Many Blessings stamp set in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  The gorgeous DSP is Nature’s Poem.  I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  It really was a fairly quick and easy card to create.  That is if you do not change your mind mid card!

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you have an awesome weekend and will come back on Monday to see what is new.  REMEMBER that Bonus Days are running out!  There is only one more week to earn $5.00 on a $50.00 order.  Also the Blended Seasons stamp set will go away next Friday as well.
