Less is More #353 & #354 Fireworks

Hi everyone.  It’s Saturday, which means another new challenge begins today at Less is More (LIM).  There’s a slight change this time as it’s a two week challenge.  For this fortnight, use the colours of Fireworks on your cards.  Pretty simple, right?  Our guest designer is our September winner, Birgit.  And our new sponsor this month is Dies to Die For.











Fireworks are bright and colourful so I made a bright and colourful Christmas card.  Stamped images with Memento black ink on a stitched rectangle panel die cut from Neenah cardstock.  Coloured the penguins with Copics.

Masked them, then added matching distress ink colours with a mini blending tool above each penguin to give them an aura. 😂   The sentiment was black heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  To complete this carolling scene, snow was added with a white gel pen.

I just have one to share this fortnight, but be sure to head over to the LIM blog for more inspirations from my team.  They may even have more fabulous creations on their personal blogs.  Remember you have two weeks this time around to play along.  Looking forward to seeing what you link up. Happy crafting and thank you for dropping by.

  3. What a fantastic card Trina! Those beautiful glows from each penguin look like a rainbow heat haze against the snow. Just genius! And the stamp itself is just too cute for words. Love everything about this card xx

  4. Too cute to be true, Trina! What a fun idea to give each penguin their own “aura” with the same colors as their Copic colored accessories are… Brilliant! The gel pen snow is the perfect finishing touch. Have a fun new week!

  5. Your carolling penguins are so adorable and this little winter scene so cute ! It reminds me a french 3D animation series that my children watched when they were little ! Love their aura and how they match with their caps ! Your colouring and your masking is just amazing as usual ! Have a great weekend and a fabulous week ! xx

  6. I love the colourful glow behind each of the cute penguins, Trina…..this is such a fun and clever Christmas card!
