Hello, 2015!

Today I finally felt well enough to do something, so I decided to make some happy new year cards. I have wanted to try the Bokeh technique as demonstrated on the WPlus9 Design Studio blog, and was pleased with my first effort.
The background is a watercolour technique with white circles sponged overtop. The words are from Waltzingmouse Stamps Compact Sentiments - the "well" is isolated from a Get Well sentiment with some judicious masking.
The die cut numbers are almost 2 inches high and I went over them with a Wink of Stella glitter pen but it is tough to see. The card is a 4.25 X 5.5 inch Memory Box pre-folded card base in aqua.

This is a chalkboard technique and I pulled together an assortment of stamps to create the look. I made a second one with a different background and some sequins. Felt good to feel up to playing again. Happy New Year!

I love the cleverly masked sentiment
