I've made this card for a friend who has a birthday later this week. She lived in Australia for several years and goes back there to visit as often as she can, so as she isn't going this year I thought an Australian themed birthday card might give her a little taste of the country.
The roos are cut with the lovely Australian Animals die set from Dies R Us. For the Uluru background, I searched on my ipad for a suitable photo and pinched it to the correct size for my card, then used an indelible pen to trace it onto acetate. Then I cut out the acetate and used it as a double mask, first to cover the sky while colouring the rock with distress inks, then to colour the sky. I made the sun first by sponging ink through card with a circle punched from it, then used the punched circle as a second mask while painting the sky using a waterbrush and two shades of blue from a kaleidacolour pad. The foreground is torn Core-dinations card.
