Wish BIG

Here's my card for our latest CAS challenge over at The Outlawz. Our challenge is to create your own background. I find myself always going for my pattern papers that I forget about all the awesome background techniques out there. This is my play on the bokeh technique. First I watercolored on my pink, orange and yellow inks onto a piece of watercolor paper. Once dry, instead of sponging circles, I stamped stars and dots with white pigment ink. Gotta say, I love the result. The background was then die cut out using the Wonky Stitches die by Avery Elle. The stamp set I used is from My Favorite Things, Count the Stars along with the Count the Stars die. Hope you can join us at The Outlawz to show off your favorite background technique.
