Fly across the hills

Morning all - hope you had a good day yesterday

I got down and messy  yesterday crafting and ended up in the garden weeding 
after the rain. Hopefully will be doing the same again today. 

Here is my card for today

I used my new stamps from Inkylicious

I first started with the background using distress inks to make the sky with a mask for 
the "sun" while I used the pink colour, then brushed over with marigold distress ink to 
colour in the sun. 

With a hill mask I used soot distress inks to make hills across the picture

Coloured in with yellow and green inks to give a bit of colour to the foreground to create a scene

Then used my NEW stamp for Inkylicious and stamped the image on the picture 
to adding extra birds across the page. 

I used AlteNew ink for this and drew out the inks on the lady's dress. 

Mounted onto purple card and onto a card blank. 

Added a sentiment from Inkylicious and a single bird in flight

I hope you like it
