MFTv Be Amazing Bokeh Effect Card


“Bokeh” in photographic terms indicates a slight blur or shift in focus. It’s an intentional look to add artistic effect – not the result of a shaky hand ;) Mimicking bokeh with stencils and ink is a simple task as long as you’re prepared with the right materials and a quick technique tutorial. In our project this week, that intentional blur adds a softness to the card that is reinforced by subtle color choices and the warmth of the gold paper and ink. Choosing a mixed media or watercolor paper as your base is the key to preventing warping.
