Card for my Dad's Birthday

I wanted to try some masking and sponging. I think it turned out pretty cool! I ripped a piece of paper to use for the skyline and the ground line. I masked off the ground line and sponged blue distress ink for the sky (I added a circle mask for the sun before sponging the sky). I removed the circle and added the paper the circle was cut from so that I could sponge the sun color. I used the mask for the skyline and sponged the ground with green distress ink. I removed the mask and stamped the tree (which I colored the trunk and some of the branches with brown colored pencil). Then I stamped the birds. I used some colored pencils to make it look like there was wild flowers in the grass area.
