Fathers Day

At Patties Creations this month, 
we challenge you with:  "Things that fly."
I used the image "Hot air balloon" and the freebie hot air balloon.

I was really struggling to make a sky background for this card.
Then my hubby asked if he could use my desk in my craft room
to do some encaustic art.
He's not done any for ages, but seeing as we have had a fair bit of time at home and done plenty
of jobs, he thought he would have a play.
Encaustic art (incase you don't know) is
painting with wax on an iron! I'm rubbish at it! 
He has all the stuff and I cleared my table:
on the premise that he made me some background pieces. 

So here is the background he made for me. Perfect for sitting the 
balloons on, which I coloured with my promarkers and 
other alcohol pens. I dry embossed the edge of the card. 

I love this card - and that its a combination of both
of our creative skills. 
I'm giving this to Dad for Fathers Day.
