Autumn Leaves

I love using Brushos with stencils.   I find its best to put a little bit of removable adhesive on the back of the stencil so it's less likely the watercolor will seep where it shouldn't.   When it does though it lends to the artsy feel so don't sweat it.   For the leaf, I sprinkled Brushos on scrap watercolor paper, spritzed, dried then die cut.   Love the random pattern so much!    I thought the Avery Elle border die would be perfect to create the sentiment strip.  Look at those pierced dots--what a great detail--so I used a pierced dot rectangle border too.
