An Aussie Christmas


On Facebook I am a member of an Aussie Crafter's group and joined in the fun of their very first Christmas swap - to send an Aussie Christmas card. My swap partner has received this now so I can show it to the rest of you. 

Zoe from Make it Crafty was helping the gals playing in the swap out with a store discount so I decided to merge some images in a fun Outback Christmas scene. There is chunky glitter on the candy cane and I've used my glitter gel pens on the fence, dessert blooms and leaf ends for extra festive sparkle - just a shame you can't capture that in a photo!

I finished it all with some "candy cane" baker's twine, a Christmas charm and a die cut piece of barbed wire.

Copics Used -  Skin {E11, E00, E000, R20, R11} plus YR27, YR23, YR20, R85, R29, R27, R24. R22, YG63, B000, B0000, T2, T0, YG99, YG95, YG93, E44, E43, E42, E18, E15, E13, E08, 100, W2, Y35, Y27, Y15, Y13, B16, B14, B12
