Bokeh coffee!

 Hi friends!

Today's card is taking the good with the bad

and the not-so-pretty with the pretty!

              I tried a new to me technique for the Alpha card group

 B = Bokeh technique.

I loved it!

It was super fun and a new way to jazz up pretty backgrounds.

But ............

then my card fell flat!

I just wasn't thrilled with how it turned out but that's okay!

It was fun and the process was in the learning not the perfection :)

To create this card, I blended several distress inks into the background.

 Once it was dry I added a stencil and sponged Hero Arts Unicorn ink 

in a random fashion to create the circles.  

I colored Latte Lucy from C C Designs in similiar colors

 and popped her on the front and added a coffee themed sentiment. 

 I'll be doing this technique again for sure - 

just plan my card out differently next time :) 

 Thanks for stopping by!
