Pals Blog Hop – Stepping Up with Textures or Techniques

Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
Booked Technique, StampinMojo, Pals Blog Hop, I am notorious for having guests for dinner and trying out a new recipe. I figure if it is a disaster we can always order pizza! Well, I did the same kind of thing with this Blog Hop. I have wanted to try the Bokeh technique and participating in this blog hop pushed me to give it a try and share my experience. I have several photos to share the process step by step.

Step 1: SpongingStep one – Take a Stamping Sponge (I cut my into quarters for easier handling) and sponge color from my Stampin’ Ink pad. I started with Calypso Coral.

Step 2: Add the second color

Step two – Sponge on the second color. I used Lost Lagoon. I am going to miss this color, I loved the softness of the blue.

Step 3: Dot on Craft Ink

Step three – Using a Sponge Dauber dot on White Craft Ink all over the sponged area. This will take a little while to dry. Then you can add it to your card and embellish away.

Bohel Technique, StampinMojo.I am pleased with my first try at this technique. I will definitely give it a try again. I hope I inspired you to try this technique if you have not done so already.

Thanks for visiting StampinMojo. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
