Birthday Wishes Card with Touches of Texture from Stampin' Up!

I had a go at another new to me technique this weekend, and this lovely card was the result. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, so you'll see a few more cards using this technique in the near future!

I started off by creating a circular template by cutting a circle in a piece of waste card using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I then secured this to a piece of Whisper White card cut to size using washi tape and used sponge daubers with several colours of ink to create the sponged circle (Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam). Removing the template left a perfectly coloured circle. I then cut a couple of smaller circles in more waste card, and sponged through those using Craft White ink on top of the coloured circle to create the bokeh effect. Not bad for a first attempt!

Supply List: Touches of Texture & Varied Vases stamp sets; Classic Label Punch; Layering Circles Framelits Dies; Whisper White and Mint Macaron card; Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue, Soft Sea Foam, Tuxedo Black Memento and Craft White inks; Pick a Pattern washi tape; Share What You Love Artisan Pearls; Tranquil Tide Bakers Twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.
