Thimble No. 2 for the Olympic Challenge

Melanie, ( is hosting the Olympic Challenge and this is my attempt for the No. 2 Thimble.
Australian animals are quite unique and I have a few laser cuts that I have painted as brooches and buttons. The Australian flowers are also different and I have attempted the bottlebrush ( on the Australia brooch), Flannel flowers ( on the kangaroo and possum) and a small amount of wattle ( on the possum).
Kangaroo, possum,Australia, wombat, platypus,and echidna
Life is a little hectic at the moment-- painting these have been rather relaxing-- as it gets me into another space.
Thank you for visiting my blog and will aim for  a longer post soon.
Take care,

Your buttons are beautiful, are they very small?

Amazingly delicate work. 2nd thimble coming right up! Having got a couple of your kits with buttons, I think you must have a paint brush with just a single hair on! :-)

Your Australian animal brooches and buttons are fabulous Yvonne.
They are very different to anything else out there.
Looking forward to seeing what you do for your next challenge.
