Welcome home!

Hi there!

I am sure you are all familiar with the feeling of accomplishment when you made a card and you love the way it turned out.

Whenever I make a ONE layer card that I love, you can multiply that feeling with 100 ! So your guess is right that I (if I may say so) I am sooo pleased with the card I am about to show you!





I took a few pictures of the work in progress:

Masked with a Silhouette cut stencil and stickers (the inside of the ring binder kind) 

Started to add ink (messy hey!)

Masked removed and starting to add colour to the dots with my Promarkers.
I am sharing my card at the ONE Layer Home challenge at Less is more and the Houses/ Home challenge at Pile it on challenge.


The sentiment I created is so simple but I will share it with you.




It's been a while since I shared a sentiment, so to make up for that I created 2 more!





To use just click on the image, right click and save on your computer!

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

This is so cool! I would have been scared to put to much black ink, but you have made a stunningly bold card.

Absolutely love how you have made this. I cannot imagine doing this myself simply because black and I dont work so well together. I could see my card with the best set of CSI fingerprints all over it :) . You are really brilliant.

Kan me voorstellen dat de voldoening na het maken van een OLC zo groot is! Mooi gedaan met een mask van de silhouette. De kaart ziet er zo strak uit en die gekleurde bolletjes zijn super vrolijk! Fijne week, Gerrina

I am amazed at how sharp and clean your card looks after using so much black ink. I am quite certain I would have had inky fingerprints somewhere on the front of the card. Your result, however, is perfect and gorgeous!

Dora said...

You are so clever! Took me a few minutes to figure out how you did this! Love the whimsical house & trees. Thanks for the tutorial and for more fabulous sentiments!

Sazzle Dazzle said...

You are SO clever Hannelie. At first glance I thought 'oh no - she's used patterned paper as a layer' but I just saw your name underneath and though now way will Hannelie have slipped up! Safe to say you rocked it once again with your fun, colourful and amazing originality. Love it. Thanks again for the sentiment for mine and looks like I've a few more here for another time!
Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.

Petra Swart said...

Ja, one layers is ook nou nie juis my sterk punt nie, vrou, maar hier het jy weer jouself oortref, jong!!! Absoluut ongelooflik die idees waarmee jy vorendag kom!!! Dis nie net jy wat mal is oor die een nie, vrou, ek is ook (en so ook al die ander mense wat dit gesien het!!!) Verskriklik oulik!!!
Groete!!

Thanks for the pictures of your process, Hannelie...I would never have figured out how you got the colors of the polka dots by coloring over the black background. Your technique is such a fabulous idea! And the whole card is fabulous. I agree with so many other commenters who were fascinated that you could do this without black smudges somewhere else on all that white. Congrats and thanks for sharing your talent for making such a unique one layer card.
