Feeling fall

Hello lovely peeps

It's coming up to that time of the year - the trees are starting to shed and I'll soon be like a little kid kicking up the leaves on the pavement :D

For my card background I've used an old A4 leaves stencil by Pronty.  I dabbed it with distress inks then spritzed with water and laid some watercolour card on top.

This technique can sometimes give patchy results but I just did some blending around the edges to disguise it a little. 

The enthusiastic zebra is from the 'Zippy Zebras' set by MFT and the sentiment is from 
the 'All the Encouragement' stamp set (also MFT)

For the tiny leaves I used a Marianne Design die (CR1336 ) and scraps of paper/card.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:-

I love this card Kat! He looks so happy kicking up all those colourful leaves!
Stencil monoprinting is one of my fave things to make backgrounds and this one looks terrific! x
