I'm going to show some different background techniques with several of my cards for this month's hop. My first card using today's set, Gardenia, demonstrates a technique called Bokeh. This is actually a photographic technique, using blurred lighting behind the focal image of a picture. To achieve a similar look, I used sponge daubers in two different sizes and three different colors for the background.
My second card today uses scraps of coordinating patterned paper to create a background. The sentiment is from another MFP Stamp Shop set, Lots of Words.
