Sending you our thoughts - Do-Al (l) Creative special challenge

 Monday January 13, 2020

Hello.. Today we are having a special just for fun challenge over at Do-Al (l) creative
With the fire's going on over in Australia we thought we would have a special challenge using something that represents Australia such as scenery, animals, flag.. If need be google it.. that's what I did. 
There is also a call for donations via Facebook from WWF .



This is my card. I wanted to make a thinking of you and sending prayers.. I feel so bad about what is going on in Australia.  I had to google Australia since I wanted to make a scene and didn't know what Red Rock looked like.  I googled wild life and didn't have the koala or kangaroos but I found a gray bird that kinda looked like my stamp and just chose another bird because I needed two to make a scene.  I went with the below scene  I painted the background and used watercolor paper and Mission gold water colors.  I then stamped the two birds from My favorite things and painted them and using the dies to cut them out. I added the Hero arts sentiment. I just cry when I see the loss and the loss of life. The poor little animals that have passed on because of the fires just makes me so sad. Australia is in my prayers.
