Can you Bookeh in pencil?

Hi lovelies,

Aren't the nights drawing in? I can't believe it is dark before I set off home from work.

So today I'm sharing another sample I made for the launch show for the Lyra Rembrandt Polycolours and I had attempted a Bookeh background .... hmmm it didn't quite turn out as well as I had hoped as I used Sansador to blend and went slightly too far!


I used the Kingfisher image from Make it Crafty.  As you can see I over blended waaaaaaay too much, but still I'm quite happy with it as far as a background is concerned lol


For my backing paper I embossed a sheet of white card and coloured that too .. this card took a looong time I can tell you!


I added lots of layers of white for dimension and a simple bow with a sparkler to finish.

I hope you like it.

Hugs xx Cara xx
