I decided to have a go at producing the Bokeh effect on a background but instead of the usual circles I used a stencil which was in fact a piece of 'waste' card left after I'd die cut some flower shapes. Distress stains were used to colour the card first in streaks and 'splats' and then the flowers were overlaid in a random fashion using white gesso thinned with a little water. I didn't want to cover too much of it so simply stamped the wording on top and added a die cut strip and some flowers as a border. A technique with lots of possibilities I think!
