I created a scenic background based on images I found online depicting Australia's Outback.
I used my trusty Sizzix dies again for the sand, grass and tree.
The background was embossed and sponged with a little blue ink around the clouds. Although I used the Darice cloud folder, you could easily use the SU cloud one as well.
