A little birdie told me!

Hi there!
Some more of my shopping while on our travels. I bought this Sketchy birds and stencil set at Michaels in Halifax, Canada.
There are so many Autumn challenges around at the moment, so decided to enter a few of them.
I used DI sponged through the stencil for part of the background, and anothy dotty stencil for the other half. The branch is a die cut which I shaded with DI walnut stain. I stamped the bird so it stands on the branch, and stamped it again on a scrap. After colouring, I cut it out (without the legs) and glued it over the one on the card.
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Penny Black and More - autumn colours
Stamping Sensations - autumn colours
Happy Little Stampers - use dies
Lets Craft and Create #118 - I chose the autumn option
Bastel-traum#46 - autumn option
Stamplorations CAS - I did not take the option
Stamplorations - Stamps and sponging
