Fall Fun with Inky Impressions

Hi everyone, it's a great day here and time for some Inky Impressions inspiration.  Today I have a fun fall easel card featuring adorable little Christopher, this stamp is called "Christopher's Catch", I started by using the "Picture Inspiration" challenge over at the Inky Challenge Blog, love the colors and fall theme on this photo.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored with distress ink re-inkers.  The leaves were made with a Cuttlebug die, I inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink, shaped them a bit with an embossing tool, I then applied some distress stickles to them.

Here is a closeup of the image and leaves. 
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day.
