Happiness forever

A rubber stamped lurve card today. My dear BF Carol taught me this method called Bokeh.  You take some smooth CS, punch out different size circles from a piece of sturdy scrap, then using Finger Daubers, gently daube Distress Ink through the circle template. Then stamp using a strong black ink.


Bokeh'ed CS stamped with a rubber Tim Holtz stamp, then highlighted with a white Sharpie, the sentiment is also TH
