CAS(E) this Sketch! 78...Emboss Paste+Paint

The sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch is cool!  The wavy lines had me thinking of the Leaves stencil by Simon Says Stamp!  I used some green craft paint mixed with my translucent embossing paste, and stenciled my leaves.  Here's my card and the sketch...
 Super clean and simple.  I tried and accomplished to not totally mix the paint with the paste to get a marbled/varied look on the leaves.  I stenciled on a total A2 unfolded card...stenciling is easiest and turns out best if it is done on a flat surface...so I cut down the panel after the paste/paint dried.  How do I know this?  I tried it, stenciling the panel already cut, with the stencil's leaves hanging over the edges...got paste/paint under the stencil...just saying:)!!  Here's the sketch...
I used a sentiment from Winnie and Walter...love these sentiments!!!
Here's a close up of the glossy embossed leaves...love the varied color mixed with the uneven texture and shine...
OK...FUN!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
