Place the stencil over the top, I have used the Dreamweaver Tree Silhouette Stencil. First it is important rub your stencil with something that will stop it from be permanently attached to the double sided sticky sheet. You can used vegetable soap, your anti static bag or a watermark pad, I have used soap on this one and not been as neat as I should have been, Lynell would not approve!
Add dark glitter.
Normally it is important to use glitters that give you a good contrast of colours so that they both stand out, but I have used a bronze colour for my trees from the Woodware Glitter sets.
You may have noticed that on the card I have a moon, I forgot to take photographs of the first one, and then forgot to add the mask for the moon on the second one. To make the mask punch a circle from the release sheet that protects the doublesided sticky sheets and put this on before the stencil.
The card looks quite smart without the finishing touches.

This week the Woodware theme has been chosen by Siobhan, I don’t think bookmarks will ever go out of fashion, while I never read fiction in a proper book I do have lots of craft books which have lots of pages that have to be marked.
I have made my book marks all the same, but they are going to be a gift to my owl loving niece.
I have stamped on Craft Canvas with my favourite ink ColorBox Crafters the colour range has been increased which is very exciting! I have used the Anne Butler Quilting stamps on the Craft Canvas, I lined up the canvas on my cutting mat to get the stamps positioned properly.
Then I sponged colour over the top.
Then I used the Dreamweaver Small Open Owl stencil with a stencil brush and the Crafters inks.
