W&W Stenciled Leaves

I need a card for a friend going through a sad time, so decided to make something I can enter in the Winnie & Walter BD Bash Challenges which are about to close. 



I used the Leaf Effect die to make a stencil.  The coloring was done with several green Zigs & a waterbrush.  I left the stencil in place & when it dried I covered the panel with translucent paste.  Had to wait for that to dry & then added more color with the Zigs between the leaves. 


Kind of a fun, artsy look, I think.  The SSS hugs die was stacked three high using the bottom one for a shadow.  The top one was covered with Wink of Stella.  I attached some silver thread behind the word before adding it to the panel.  The card front was covered with the same green cardstock I used for the word.  Finished off with 3 green sequins.  The word die has four letters, so I'm entering the Four Challenge.  My stencil made from the leaves die & the word die cut let me also enter the Die Challenge.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
