Alex Syberia Designs | Bokeh Balloons

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using another new product from the Alex Syberia Designs September 2023 release. I shared my other projects HERE if you missed them. Today I am using the Bokeh Balloons Stencil which can be used in so many different ways, but I thought I would create a galaxy sky type look for my card today. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off with a panel of Tim Holtz Distress White Heavystock and added blobs of ink blending on top, in a random way, with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon and Picked Raspberry. I then went over the panel with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink, trying not to cover too much of the colours. 

I placed the Alex Syberia Designs Bokeh Balloon Stencil on top and added ink blending inside the balloons using Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink. I did this a few times with the different sizes of balloons to cover the panel. I then splattered on some water, followed by Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White Paint and set it aside. 

I die cut the letters from the Alex Syberia Designs Foxtrot Alphabet Die Set three times and stacked them up one on top of another (for dimension) before adhering to the panel. The panel was then adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape.

Although different, I do like how it turned out! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day! 


  1. Michelle, hi from Canada. Such a creative way to use the balloons - love the galaxy background!! Love how the background shines through the balloons!! One of my favourites from this wonderful release is the Fireworks cover plate.

  2. This is amazing Michelle! I really must try creating a galaxy background this way. I'd have just assumed that the black soot would cover all the colours but I have seen you do this before and I love how you can still see the colours through it. The end result is so stunning with all the splatter detail and those elegant letters!
