MFT April Release Countdown: Bokeh Builder



Welcome to this month's Release Countdown with My Favorite Things! You will find complete details each day on the MFT Blog, including how you can win prizes and full reveals of featured products.


The stamp set I am sharing from the MFT April Release today is called, Bokeh Builder. Bokeh is the way that a camera lens renders out-of-focus light, or more simply put, the pretty dots of light in the background of photos. Its a pretty popular trend in paper crafting, and this stamp set helps you achieve the look easily!


Knowing that the sun can create beautiful bokeh, I grabbed my Stencil Sun Ray and inked through it with Lemon Drop ink onto Smooth White cardstock. Then I proceeded to stamp the dots with Lemon Drop ink, both with the first inking and a second time without re-inking. To add a more natural look, I stamped the dots again, but this time with Sweet Tooth pigment ink. Happy clapping for the results!


The sentiment was stamped with the new Hybrid Black Licorice ink. A few white sequins were added for a bit more of a sparkle.

Curious about the new line of Hybrid inks that MFT is adding to their collection? Be sure and visit the MFT Blog for all the details. There are 12 bright and vivid colors that I cannot wait to keep playing with!

thanks for stopping by!
