CASology : Safari

Hi there!

Come join us on safari this week at CASology !


This theme is close to my heart, because it reminds me so much of my beloved home country South-Africa!

A closer look:

I used :
  • Old-tree-silhouette cutting file from Apex cuttables.
  • Elephant cut from clip art image found on the web.
  • Large halftone circle stamp from Altenew.
  • "PaperBag" ink also from Altenew.
  • Grass stamp magazine freebie
  • My own digital sentiment.
  • Silhouette cameo to cut the tree and elephant.
  • Misti stamping tool.

You are welcome to download my sentiment for personal use.

Fonts used:

African & Sunshine boulevard.

This is my favorite for sure. The depth you get and going off the edge (which is my mantra)...just awesome!

Love this, Hannelie! African sunsets and elephants are near to my heart too and I particularly love them in silhouette. Beautiful take on the challenges and the fonts on your sentiment are perfection. So happy to see you in the gallery this week!

Nice crisp silhouettes and I love the theme. Very cool that you used the halftone circle for the sun. I like that! It's interesting to imagine South Africa as one's home country. Or Abu Dhabi for that matter. So different from anything I'm familiar with.

TaeEun said...

Fabulous combination of the stamps and cutting files together, Hannelie!!! Looks so cool!

It's always a joy to come by and see your cards Hannelie! Sorry my visits are not as often as they should be! Back to School and Wedding mode at the moment. Thanks for sharing your talents with us at Seize the Birthday! This card is Fabulous!

Joyce said...

This is so striking. Love your wonderful silhouette. I hope to make it to your home country one of these days and see an elephant for myself.
