autumn colours challenge

Hi everyone - hope you are all well.
I have made this tag to enter the Autumn Colours challenge over on Oak House Studio . The challenge is on their Facebook page Inkspired by Oak House all the links are on their blog.
For this tag I cut out a small circle from some scrap paper. Decided where I wanted it to be on the tag, then inked around it using Oak House ink pad in burgundy.
I then stamped the clematis corner & the pumpkin, both from Oak House Studio onto some more scrap paper & cut out to use as masks.
I stamped the clematis corner using black archival ink. Placed the mask onto the stamped image & stamped the pumpkin circle using spiced marmalade Distress Ink, then stamped the pumpkin detail using Oak House ink pad in yummy chocolate. Placed the pumpkin mask over the stamped image & stamped another one to be behind the first one.
I coloured the flowers using Oak House inks, Distress Inks & Creative Expressions watercolour.
Used the masks again, covering the images while I inked the rest of the tag, using Oak House ink pad in burgundy over some torn copy paper to give the look of hills. Stamped the trees using Oak House ink pad in yummy chocolate.
Made a couple of 'flicks' for birds, inked around the edges using the yummy chocolate and added an orange ribbon. Put some orange stickles on the pumpkins.
Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by.
