I thought about the word this week, and kind of went blank. I am sooooo done with Christmas for at least this week [a new challenge coming.....], so, I went to my favorite inspiration spot, Pinterest, and found this beauty;
I am so drawn to the Bokeh effect. Did you notice all the Christmas programs and advertisements using this effect? I did, it just jumped out out me. Anyway, on with my card.
My goal for 2015 is to Make It Work. I am pulling out stamps I haven't used forever, and making them current by creating "trend" type of cards. I did some Bokeh technique on this card for the "snow" effect, along with using an OOB image of the tree. [Did you see all the forest with deer type of cards over the holiday?] I also used the stamped borders instructions from PTI Make It Monday My snowflakes and sentiment are from Verve, Snowflake Splendor [also discontinued].
On a side note, did you notice how my background is out of focus? I splurged and took an on line Photography class from Craftsy. I am happy to say, I FINALLY figured out the setting on my camera to achieve this look! I am quite thrilled with this to be honest! I love the effect. I am hoping the more I play with my camera [finally], I will get better.
So, now it's your turn to pop on over to JUGS #274 and show us how "Winter" inspires your card!
