Less is More #277

The theme this week at Less is More is something that pops or bangs. After some thought I decided to make a card using bubble wrap to create a background, after all nothing has a more satisfying pop than bubble wrap!

I started by masking an area using strips of torn paper. I then wrapped some bubble wrap around an acrylic block and stamped using twisted citron distress ink. I then used my Dutch Doobadoo burlap mask with my distress spritzer and a squeezed lemonade distress marker. The sentiment was a magazine freebie stamp.

Thank you for visiting today, happy crafting.
