Celebrate: Bokeh watercolour

Watercolour bokeh celebrate

What:

Another watercolour experiment. This time I had a play with stamping white circles over it — I hesitate to call it a bokeh effect as that has a very specific meaning in photography (and I know some photographers who doubtless wouldn’t be impressed with the term being appropriated like this), but that is what the technique is generally called.

How:

The same watercolour technique as yesterday, but this time with a palette of red and orange. Once it was dry, I used the different sizes of stamps and generation stamping to add the white circles over the top. Oh, and I may have gone a bit overboard 🙂 I finished it off with a big, bold sentiment and a few of the stars left over from yesterday’s die-cutting, and then mounted it all on black.
