CCEE1530 - Watercolor Bokeh

For this week's CCEE Challenge, I am featuring a background technique known as watercolor bokeh. The word bokeh is a photography term which describes the way a camera lens creates out-of-focus points of light.

Here is an excellent SCS tutorial which explains the steps taken to create this unique look. Take a peek at it if you are not familiar with this background technique.

Please join us and link your card up using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post. If you upload to another site such as Splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1530 to your keywords.

Check out the beautiful designs created by the CCEE Design Team using this technique.

CCEE1526 Weddings

Hi, today is my last challenge to host for June. As a child, I remember the local newspaper selected a June bride to feature in a specially published section of the paper in the month of June. Only one was selected, so I am sure it was a great honor. For our final challenge of the month, make a card featuring a bridal couple or a wedding cake.
For fun check these out:
