Butterfly Bokeh-Broke Stampers Unite Challenge

Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features the Swallowtail stamp and the Bokeh technique.

I absolutely love butterflies.  That was the start of this challenge for me (besides knowing I had to use the bokeh technique). From there, I chose my colors. Nice warm oranges and yellows. I used sponge daubers for this card.  Sometimes I use sponges that I cut into fourths.

Use which ever you have on hand.  Don’t panic if you think you white spots stand out quite a bit.  You design will look different once you stamp on it. broke stampers unite bokeh techniques

If you’d like to see a video how to do this technique, you can check it out here.  Do you want to see what Terry and Carol created with this technique?  Let’s check out Carol’s card here and Terri’s card here.
