The early night meant that next day we were awake as dawn was breaking and I took the children over to the washroom blocks, which were outside our gated enclosure, to freshen up. As we crossed the path to get there, a line of the zoo's free roaming wallabies bounced right past us, close enough for us to have touched them if we hadn't been frozen to the spot in awe. What a wonderful sight, to see them so close and unconcerned in the early morning sunshine!
We decides they must have been patrolling their territory before the visitors arrived for the day - the dawn patrol, and the theme of this card.
I have a die of Australian animals and I think these are meant to be kangaroos, but today they are being wallabies. I cut them out in light brown card, but once I had stencilled in the rising sun they looked lost against it so I inked each die cut in black, not too heavily so that thanks to the textured card you can just see a little of the original colour coming through.
