Fall splendour at Craft a Scene

Good afternoon folks, time for a new challenge at Craft a Scene and this month our theme is 'Fall Splendour' . The weather is definitely starting to change in my little corner of the country and I can just see the first signs of the leaves starting to change colour. I just love the colours of autumn and really enjoyed making this card.

I began by creating a background with PanPastels, the sky was created with turquoise tint PanPastel and I added a sun with Hansa Yellow Tint, the foreground was coloured with a little Yellow Green Shade.
All the stamps used are from Lavinia stamps, I used lots of masking to create my little scene and stamped the images with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I stamped the leaves and the foliage on the trees with Memento Ink in Bamboo Leaves, Rhubarb Stalk, Tangelo and Canteloupe

I added some colour to the images with Inktense pencils and used my Graph'It silver shake pen to give the wings some sparkle.. The sentiment is also from Lavinia Stamps, stamped with versamark and embossed with gold WOW Embossing powder.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges
Artistic Stamper: autumn colours
Bearly Mine: autumnal colours
Delicious Doodles: colours of Autumn
Natalie and Amy's: things with wings
Red Rubber Inspirationals: Favourite stamping technique (masking)
