Spread Your Wings and Fly! - My Creative Time Throwback Thursday

Hi Everyone!!
Welcome to "Throwback Thursday~Do Over" with My Creative Time!
This is such a fun theme, I have so many projects I would love to do over again it was hard to single one out.  I ended up picking this butterfly card I created about a year and a half ago, I just loved the bokeh technique.

I used some Strathmore Watercolor Paper and the blue from the Faber-Castell Metallic Gel Sticks to create the watercolor background.  For the bokeh dots I used one of the little circle stamps from MCT's Bough's of Holly with some Tumbled Glass distress ink and the same gel stick I used for the background.  The butterfly and sentiment is from the Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy set, cut out with the Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly die and stamped with tumbled glass.  The background was die cut using the large Stitched Rectangular Frame Die.  A simple card but the addition of the watercolor makes it so much nicer!!

This is the original using distress ink, gel stick and a pencil eraser to create the bokeh effect.
