Aussie Kanga’s

In the lead up to Australia Day, thought I’d do some cards featuring our native kangaroos.

stamps: ‘Silhouette Kangaroos’ 6249K from Kaszazz; ‘Acacia Branch’ CO727991 from Couture Creations; ‘Australian Outback’ and both ‘Happy Birthday’ wordings from Stamp-it.

Re-visiting one of my favourite ways to colour backgrounds, using an acrylic block. I love it when the dribbles run over the edges.

I used chalks and watercolour pencils to colour in, highlighting plants with Liquid Pearls.


Below is another card using the same kangaroo stamp, together with an Australian Outback scene (from Stamp-it), but not the same background technique obviously. I applied some Silver Liquid Pearl with a thin paintbrush to the iron roof of the building, and Silver Fab Foil to the wire fence line.
