Bokeh Christmas

For today's pink Christmas card, I started with some ink blending using dye inks and then went to work with white pigment ink to create a bokeh effect. When I did not get the result I was after using solid circle stamps, I switched to a circle stencil and simply applied the ink with my finger.

The sentiment (Card Making Magic/Christina Griffiths, probably cut from Centura pearl) was left over from a previous crafting session.

I'm playing at:

Jingle Belles - Pink Christmas ... for the cure

As always, the first JB challenge in October is 
all about pink holiday cards
And for every card that is being linked up 
this fortnight, the lovely Jingle Belles, 
Lauren and Stephanie, will each be donating 
2 dollars to the US Breast Cancer Research Foundation
