Today I have something very different to share with you. Last week during a class, one of the ladies asked if we could make some Indigenous inspired cards. Always keen to try something new, I naturally said yes. But I had no idea what I was going to do. So after looking at Indigenous artworks on Google images and Pinterest, I came up with these three cards.
The most common theme in Indigenous artwork is the dot painting.
Hence the dots on all these cards. Other themes were water, the bush and animals. The ladies in class loved these cards, so I must of done a half decent job.
I have used the Swirly Scribbles Dies on the first two cards for the water, tree trunk and tree top. The fish is made up of a circle that has been cut twice to make the body shape, the fins are from the Pyramid Pals dies and the tail is made from the Bow Builder punch. It was fun looking at all my dies and punches to come up with shapes that would work. I may or may not have got sidetracked a few times and made other projects when inspiration hit me.
The dots were made using Stampin' write markers. A bit time consuming, but so worth it.
I hope you enjoy my cards today. The products I used are listed below.
Thanks for popping by.
Have a great day.
