Lavinia Stamps and the Bokeh Technique.

Morning all... I'm having a crafty Sunday.
This is what I've made so far. Blend three colours of Distress Inks (Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac and Dried Marigold) over some Centura Pearl card stock, the reverse white side. Then stamp the Silhouette House Pods from Lavinia Stamps using Versafine Ink. Dry with a heat gun.
Place a Circle Stencil over the images, this is a stencil designed by Finnabair and available from  
Oyster Stamps) 

Carefully sponge White Pigment ink through the circle shapes and allow to dry. I stencilled some of the smaller circle shapes close to the middle of my art work, to 'resemble' car head lights.. well, that was the idea!
