Lawnscaping challenge #106: New technique

Happy Monday!!

Are you ready for a new Lawnscaping challenge? You're going to have fun with this one because we're challenging you to try a new technique!

I struggled a lot about how technique I was going to use because when I see something new that I'm interested on it, I usually try it asap so... what to do? I surfed a bit on the Internet and found this fun technique using watercolors and white pigment ink to create bokeh backgrounds. I love bokeh so I wanted to try it out!

Mine didn't turned as pretty as the one in the video but it's really pretty in person! I added some embossing paste with glitter and sequins for a magical festive background.


Then I die cut the Lawn Fawn balloons and sprayed with a glittery spray, then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to have a pair of glossy balloons :) The whole card ended up being very sparkly, glittery and glosy lol!!

Celebrate - detail

As you can see I used a new technique but also a bunch of old ones. Maybe you haven't tried any of these yet, so it's your chance to give them a try and win a price from our sponsor, Lawn Fawn!

Your card is gorgeous and I absolutely love how your bokeh background turned out! I still haven't tried this technique either, but I'm definitely going to have to give a try!
