Fathers Day in Australia

Tomorrow is Father's Day and a photo from Just  Inspirational Challenge set me thinking. 
I loved the colours and the perspect of the pathway, also someone holding something that protected them.  Bit deep lol.   I started with the background for my card and incorporated a road and bushes from Make It Crafty, called Australia Outback Scene, you can find it HERE.   You get roads, bushes stones etc, which you can then create your own little scene.  I then added some Fir Trees, dragonfly and birds in a nest to complete the scene.  I have used Copic, Touch and Kaiser Pens to colour the image, which I have purposely not kept within the lines as I wanted the colours to be blurred around things, if that makes sense.

Then I created a Father and Daughter holding hands and used my Ecraft to cut out the silhouette.  Mounted on Kraft card and Brown carsdstock I have attached them at the bottom with glue, the torsos with 3d squares, but I have left the heads loose and bent the little girl to be looking up at her father.  (This might be a bit creased as my dear hubby thought I had forgotten to stick it down and tried pushing it into place)

Hope you like my Dad's card
