Bokeh tutorial for Spectrum Noir.

Hello to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.
I would like to share a colouring tutorial for Spectrum Noir.

I have been seeing the 'Bokeh' technique on a lot of creations recently.  I have an easy step by step tutorial, for creating this background using the fabulous Spectrum Aqua markers. 
I hope you will pop over to Spectrum Noir and have a look. 




Details of Spectrum Noir products used to colour this image can be found here.

I really enjoyed colouring the lovely 'Dragonfly' image from Elisabeth Bell and creating this project.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;


 Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.

The bokeh background is really effective, I really like your colorful version of this technique. A really adorable summery design.
I'm sorry I haven't been around lately, I just got home from a wonderful holiday in Greece.

What a fab, fun technique, Laine! I love the bubble effect it creates; framing that gorgeous image so beautifully! You’ll be pleased to know I was making notes and the simple phrase ‘dried with a heat gun to fix the image’ is going to help me ENORMOUSLY!! :) :) xxx
