Just for You, Mojo Monday 387


It's the begining of the week once again and it's time for another Mojo Monday card.
Today I tried a new technique that has been really hot lately. It's called Bokah.  There are lots of
tuts on You tube, but the idea is to use Watercolor Paper. (In a pince, try your SU Whisper white paper, it has some of the properties of Watercolor paper.

Wet the paper well, using your Water brush, or another brush you dip in water, pick up a dab of reinker from one of your 2 to 3 colors you have selected.  Here I used So Saffron, Strawberry Slush, and Coastal Cabana.  It's brighter then I intended so I need to do a little work. After you have it like
you want just let it dry.

You will then need a template with round shapes.  I used window sheet and punched some, and used the circle framelits for a couple.   Using a sponge or dauber lay the template down on your paper and rub White craft ink  in the circle. Do as many or as few circles as you like. They will soften as it drys creating a very soft look.
