One Layer Cards

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday :)
Today I want to share two OLC (one layer cards) with you.

On the first one ("Batty In Love"), I've used Paper Smooches stamps - once again (as I told you before: I'm in love with their designs). 
On the second card I've used some Hero Arts christmas stamps. On both of the cards I've colored the images with Tombow Dual Brush pens (and also some watercolor pencils for the bat) and added some little extras with a black gel pen (like the rope for the bat to hang on in the first card and the doodled frame on the second card)

Hallo zusammen und Euch allen einen wunderschönen Mittwoch :)
Heute möchte ich Euch gerne zwei OLC (steht für "one layer card" - also Karten mit nur einer Lage) zeigen.

Bei der ersten habe ich wieder mal Stempel von Paper Smooches benutzt (ich hab's ja bereits erwähnt: ich finde deren Designs einfach hinreißend!). Bei der zweiten Karte kamen Hero Arts Weihnachts Stempel zum Einsatz. Bei beiden Karten habe ich die Motive mit Tombow Dual Brush pens coloriert (bei der Fledermaus kamen auch noch Aquarellstifte mit zum Einsatz) und außerdem wurden jeweils noch mit einem schwarzen Gel-Stift ein paar Extras hinzugefügt (wie beispielsweise das Seil an dem die Fledermaus hängt oder den gedoodelten Rahmen bei der zweiten Karte)

*** so very proud ***

  1. I never realized there was a name for these types of cards. Thank you for teaching me something new. :) That bat is just too cute! I love how you added in something for him to hang from. Your coloring on both cards looks so good!

  2. Beide Karten sind wunderschön geworden. Ich habe immer einen großen Respekt vor One Layer Cards, ich finde sie so schwierig zu machen! Aber deine sind genial!
