Happy Christmas!

Hi there!

I was smiling when I read your post at Less is more, Chrissie... saying :

"Here are our cards to give you a few ideas, not that you will need many"

When you give me SNOW and ONE LAYER in one sentence, I shudder  and surely I do need inspiration!

Haven't seen too much snow in my 40 + years (hey I am from South-Africa and now I live in the desert, snow is a foreign concept to me!) and one layer... well that's  another story !



Whenever I struggle for inspiration, I find that reaching for favorites ( color combinations, elements, layout ) always help!

BTW... this is the current sketch at Case this sketch. I LOVE it... you can tell ;)

That's exactly what I did! And I quite like the outcome!

Brilliant, Hannelie! Almost doesn't look one-layer, your inking is that perfect!

Angela said...

You have come through simply beautifully, Hannelie!

I first thought "that's not one layer". How genius of you to ink up the card that way. It's fabulous, Hannelie.

Wat een gaaf idee om zo toch de sketch te gebruiken! Het lijkt op het eerste gezicht of je meer lagen gebruikt hebt; mooie techniek en heel mooie kaart! (enne ik vind die sketch ook heel mooi...) Groetjes, Gerrina

You never cease to amaze Hannelie with your fabulous designs. I thought you'd slipped up and made a 2 layer card BUT no - just perfect. Love it
Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.

Oh my goodness! I must have been channelling you without even realising! Just created a card using a snowflake stencil (from SA, no less!) and filling it with white pigment ink on kraft! I was thinking about food though. Always food...!
