Australian Outback

If you live in Australia, you will be used to seeing these around the country side, even now, many of them rusted and no longer working, but some still going strong.  They are a bit of an Australian icon. So when I found the Australian Outback Collection of Digital images from Make It Crafty, I just had to get them, they are just wonderful for making Masculine cards and all sorts of other projects as well.

WindmillCard
My card today is made for the Clean and Simple Design Team call with Make It Crafty.
I have sized the windmill image to around 6 x 13cm and coloured it using the following Copic markers: W6, W4, W2 and E18.  Here is a close up of the colouring:

I have then layered the coloured image onto a piece of Stampin’ Up! Basic Grey cardstock, and also made the card base from the same colour.  The layer of patterned paper comes from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack (also Stampin’ Up!) and the sentiment comes from one of my all time favourite Stampin’ Up! stamp sets, Wetlands.  Cut a flag into one end of the sentiment strip and a couple of Candy dots at the other end, then adhere with dimensional tape, and it’s done! Simple! And Clean 🙂

  1. Thank you so much for applying for the team Chris. This is a wonderful masculine card design and I would never have thought to use the windmill as the focal image! But it works perfectly.

  2. Fab card Chris and gorgeous shading. I love your wind generator image, it’s funny how things go round, the modern equivalent are springing up all over the UK.
