The forest in the tree

The sudden transition of our backyard view from leafy canopy to bare sky has hit me especially hard this year, and it all happened so quickly I hardly had time to enjoy the colors (and by enjoy I mean craft about). But I've enjoyed most beautiful show of Orion's proud stance the past few nights, so I've decided to embrace the fall-ish colors and keep the spring-y flowers for their season.
For this week's super Tuesday Trio sketch challenge, I went with a rough color palette of yellow, green, orange and red. I cut stamp into three overlapping sections and then stamped it on vellum and cut out some small details of winged things, the extra challenge for this week. My favorite part is the "stump" border.
