*SweetStamps #138: Fall

Good morning sweeties!
Happy Tuesday!!
Today, at SweetStamps we have a new and fun challenge for you. 
This weeks theme is: 
For my card today, I am using my cute little fried: Scarecrow
I had so much fun creating the background and coloring the Scarecrow.
I stamped my Scarecrow and masked it and then stamped the clouds, which are from ArtstyfArtsy: Cloudy Skies and also masked those.  Once I have everything masked, I rubbed the distress inks from lightest to darkest, to create my background. 
Colored the image using Copic markers.
Here is a close-up of the image!!
I really, really love how it looks against that orange-hue background.
Those clouds are so cool looking too!!!  I know that I will be using these more often now.
