Shopping Our Stash #397 - Stencil Me This - Life is a Zoo

Hello, Crafty Makers!
The fortnight challenge over at Shopping Our Stash is "Stencil Me This!"
I have two challenges this week that require the use of stencils.  To make my life easier, I used the same card style and just changed up my colors.  I hope you like this one.  
Listen Up!
This is my favorite of the three stencil projects I created this week.  I thought this cute little elephant would be the most engaging guest speaker and of course, his audience it totally ignoring him! 😊
I added a little "Wink of Stella" to the elephant but as usual, it did not photograph well.  The background stencil image was created using the "watermark" with stencils technique you can see a step tutorial HERE.
These little guys came with dies, which made masking them very easy.  I added little patches of green and the small puddle to ground my characters.  I have created more critter cards in the past few months than in all my years of crafting.  I think I really enjoy making them.

Thanks for stopping by.
Looking forward to seeing your entries in the challenge!
