A Day On The Farm

This is the second card I've been asked to make for Father's Day and it's for a colleague's son to give his Grandad on Fathers Day and I've used an easel card for this one.

The backing for this image has been made from tearing strips of papers from the Serif "Picnic in the Park" papers free with this months Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine and then using several Art Impressions stamps - teeny tiny grass, small grass clump & tiny stones  - I have created a field upon which to place the tractor.  The paper has been edged with distress ink - peeled paint, the clouds were created using a masking technique and distress ink - tumbled glass.  The sun and birds were added using a Whispers pens.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:
