Tutorials
April 27-- Flower Arranging by Sandy
April 29-- Retiform by Pat

Let's get started !!

In addition to the butterflies and bugs, my theme for this month's blog hop will be different ink backgrounds.  Today I'm showing the Bokeh background.  Bokeh is actually a photographic technique described as the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens.  Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light."  It is produced on a card by using sponge daubers of different sizes in different colors. 


The MFP Stamp Shop sets I used on this card were Swallowtail and Oopsy Daisy.




Here's the Design Team:
 Karen
Kren
Lois   (that's me)
Marilynn
Enjoy the Hop. Come back each day. We hope to inspire you to start your own Butterflies and Bugs projects.  Get to work on the tutorials, show us what you made by May 13th and check back on May 14, 2016, to see if you are a winner.
