Less is More #277

Hello! 

We are hoping that this week's challenge at Less is More will go with a bang as we are looking for pops/bangs on your cards.  To be honest, I struggled with this one a bit and could only really think of balloons!  Then I thought of a pop of colour....


I used some sweet MFT lightbulb stamps and masked one and inked through a sunburst stencil (Clarity) to create a pop of colour.


Next up I decided to use an image of a penguin popping out of a cake for another take on 'pop'.  The sweet image is from Create a Smile.  The central panel is popped up over some patterned paper.


Finally I did go with my first idea of balloons.  The dies are from Simon Says and I inked through a starry background stencil in pale blue to add a bit of interest.  The sentiment is from Simon Says too.

I hope that these 3 different interpretations of this week's challenge give you some ideas too.  I am sure that there are lots more ways of featuring pops/bangs that I have not thought of!  The fab DT have lots of other ideas to share over at Less is More.

Thanks as always for stopping by :)

  3. You've been super busy with your super clever makes yet again Sarah! Those lightbulbs and sentiment are sheer perfection and I love that cute penguin popping up on the second one. You can't beat balloons either for popping and banging. Have a fun weekend and hope the sun comes out at some point for you. xx

  12. Such creative takes on the challenge! The first card looks great with the rays behind the lightbulbs, really eye catching and sunny. The penguin is adorable and it's a great idea for a 'pop'. The balloons on the third card look great in that paper and it's a really stylish layout - great inspiration from all three cards.
