Thanks…so very much

This card is for the lady we stayed with on our recent holiday to Australia. We stayed with her for a week during our time there, so I thought it would be nice to show our appreciation by sending her a thank you card! I also made another one for my in-laws, who were generous enough to take us with them on their holiday. I have the best in-laws ever!!

The artwork on the card was inspired by the Aboriginal art I saw so much of when we were in Oz. Now my card is by no means Aboriginal art, but simply my own take on it from the inspiration I had! I don’t pretend to know anything much about the Aboriginal culture, and this card has no ‘story’ to tell like with many of the Aboriginal drawings. But I had great fun playing around painting in dots and being ‘arty’ for half an hour!! =)

The stamped sentiment at the bottom is from an idea Kristina Werner (similar to her card in this post), which I’ve used recently for this card.

The video below is slightly longer than usual, because I take you through all of the painting process, just in case you wanted to have a dabble with acrylic paints yourself. It’s so much fun!
