Such a beautiful Magenta floral silhouette image Christine and the bokeh works brilliantly on both examples. x

Wow, what a difference that makes. I love them both but I like the effect of the first card. It is so different.

Loll said...

Both cards are so cool. What great samples to show the difference, thanks Christine. xx

Susan said...

Love seeing the way they look with the stamp on top and the stamp underneath the bokeh circles. Both are equally stunning! Beautiful colour choices in both.

Bonnie said...

Two very different looks, Christine! I hadn't thought of doing the bokeh over the stamped design and I love the effect! Thanks for the brilliant idea!

Leslie Miller said...

Sigh... these are some of the best of the best. Soooo beautiful, Christine!

Love this idea and how wonderfully they both turned out. I love the effect of both of those techniques. You make me want to try this right now! Great cards and great backgrounds once again. AND yet another notification!

That's an interesting difference. I like them both. Can't decide which I prefer, but maybe the stamping after. Thanks for sharing this xx

Both cards are impressive using the bokeh technique before and after stamping. They're both lovely and I find it hard to choose a favorite. I love the pastel colors with the dark silhouette contrast.

Both beautiful, but the twist on this technique is AWESOME! The effect is so dreamy. Will have to give it a try.
