Had a fun time this afternoon making some water colour backgrounds to go along with these Australian themed dies.
This card is made to represent the first early morning light - and the line up of little birds are getting ready for their early morning sing song. Most of these birds sing beautifully first thing in the morning - specially the kookaburra - though the big white cockatoo just screeches out of tune.
I picked out a sentiment that I thought matched the kookaburra's early morning laugh.
Hope you enjoy.

The kookaburra sings? I've only ever seen one once in real life, he certainly wasn't singing, but it did mean I could pick out his silhouette, and of course the cockatoo. I used to have a tape (long time ago!) of various dawn choruses but I don't think it actually included an Australian one. Beautiful background for them.

Your silhouetted cards are just the best Helen! I love your richly coloured backgrounds! This is the time of year that the birds have fallen silent and I really miss their songs when I walk the dog in the early morning. Your edge is lovely too - a suggestion of the vegetation surrounding your birds!
