Hallo allemaal-ben ik weer, Hi everyone-here I am again,

Gisteren avond heb ik nog een kaart gepost op mijn blog omdat één challenge waar ik die
kaart wilde laten aan meedoen bijna zijn sluitingstijd had, dus nog snel snel ingezonden.
En nu ben ik er alweer met een kaart ook omdat één van de challenges waaraan ik ze wil
laten meedoen bijna sluit. En straks post ik er nog één om dezelfde reden. Druk hier bij mij
vandaag dus.

Yesterday evening I still quickly posted a card on my blog because one of the challenges
I wanted to participate in was about to close. Today the same song I am posting this card
now because one of the challenges will close this evening. And because I need to go out
today and don't know when I will be back it's much safer to do the post right now. But
around noon I will still post a third card for the same reason. After that I'll be off to my

De kaart die ik gemaakt heb is net zoals die van gister avond iets dat ik nog nooit eerder
gedaan heb. Het is een monochromatic kaart. Ik heb dat al vaak bij anderen gezien en ik
vind het zo speciaal en zo mooi. Ik had echter totaal geen benul van hoe ik eraan moest
beginnen, dan maar een sprong in het diepe gedaan. Ik ging aan mijn craft tafeltje
zitten en begon. Eerst wàt ga ik doen, dat was al snel gekozen voor mij, ik heb bij Hobby
Cutz onlangs twee Aurora Wings digi's gewonnen (die ik zelf mocht kiezen) en die zijn
zo mooi dat ik persé die wilde gebruiken. Dus eerst maar eens de digi afprinten. Dan was
het al snel duidelijk voor mij dat ik zou gaan kleuren, met mijn favoriete inkleur methode
de Faber Castell pencils. Maar welke kleur ? Ik besloot mijn doos te openen en de kleur
waar ik de meeste potloden van heb die zou het worden. (Ik heb namelijk nog lang niet
alle Faber potloden) Tadaaaa, spannend..... Oh nee 'GROEN' van alle kleuren heb ik de
meeste groene ? Hoe komt dat nu ? Het is ver van mijn favoriete kleur, (ik vind ze
vooral op kaarten van een ander mooi en dan verkondig ik steevast dat ik meer groen moet
gaan gebruiken maar ik doe het nooit) Maar beslist is beslist en ik dacht bij een
monochromatic kaart moet je toch verschillende tinten van één en dezelfde kleur gebruiken.
(als dat niet zo is mag iemand mij dit vertellen want eigenlijk wist ik helemaal niet waar ik
mee bezig was) dus groen wordt het. Ik ben benieuwd wat jullie ervan gaan vinden. Als je
het maar niets vind mag je mij dat gerust vertellen. Zelf vind ik het wel speciaal geworden
en eigenlijk vind ik het ook wel mooi dankzij de prachtige digi van Aurora Wings,
en ook het groene is me zeer goed bevallen

The card that I have made for this theme is as was the case yesterday, something that I
had never done before. It's a monochromatic card. I've seen it several times on other blogs
and I like it, it's very beautiful, very special. However I didn't have a single clue of how to
make such a card. So I took a leap of faith. (Is that correct ? Is this how you say it when
you don't know what you are doing but you jump and go for it ?) Anyway I did ! ;-)
So I sat down on my carft table, first what shall I do ? That was an easy decision, a few
weeks ago my prize over at Hobby Cutz were two Aurora Wings digi's (of my own choosing)
& they are so very beautiful I absolutely wanted to use one of these. That was step one.
Then again what to use ? It was clear to me I wanted to colour using my favourite method
which is the Faber Castell pencils. Step 3 which colour ? Since I far don't have all the Faber
pencils yet I decided to open my box and use the colour of which I have the most pencils.
Fair enough, sounds good. Tadaaaa...... exciting.... What ? Oh no, no-no-no of all colours it's   'GREEN' ?????
This is far from one of my favourite colours. (I particularly like this colour on someone else's
card, and then I always proclaim I should use more green, but I never do) But this is what I
had decided and I had to put up with it. Besides I thought you needed lots of different
shades of one colour for a monochromatic card, so it had to be green. (If that is not correct
please tell me so, since actually I didn't have the slightesd idea off what I was doing)
Don't know anything about this technique. Therefore I am so extremely curious what you
all will think of this card. I myself am rather pleased with the outcome, it's kinde special I
think, thanks to the most beautiful Aurora Wings digi and I must say I am pleased with
the green aswell. BUT if you don't like it a bit please tell me so.
(otherwise I will try and do this again one day ) So are you ready ? Here it comes....

Sentimental sundays challenge I appologize I had al forgotten about the fact, you
had to add a sentiment, so I added it afterwards and therefore it has become just
a small one.


I also added a little bit sparkle by dipping these dark green roses into glue and then
into green glitter powder.
Ik heb een beetje bling toegevoegd door deze donkere groene rozen in lijm
te deppen en daarna in groen glitter poeder.

The greens look so beautiful, I love green and most all colors. I love the digi you used and you have colored it so pretty. The flowers with their sparkle are beautiful as well.

  15. A beautiful, elegant card. Loe the composition and perfect work.

  16. very glam in green!Thank you for joining us at TIOT, we hope to see you again soon.EE

  17. I had a little giggle all the way through reading your poasst. I think your green look very pretty...but...I titally understand about using a colour that you worry about.

    I am not a purple person. I rarely use it on cards, unless the recipient loves purple. When I see it on other bloggers cards I do what you said...I proclaim I really should use purple more often! But now, after blogging a couple of years, I have come to respect purple and now I even have my first purple teeshirt!!!

    Very [retty card. Your image is beautiful and beautifully coloured.

  18. Gorgeous card, thanks for playing along at TIOT! Valerie

  19. I love this image. I used it on a card myself a week or so ago. You have made a beautiful monochromatic card. Well done! Kate x
    P.S. I have finally managed to get your posts to show on my feed!
