Stencil and Mask

Here I used a stencil and mask I cut out of mylar, using the Silhouette cutting machine.

I used texture paste on the birch tree stencil and when it was dry I placed the NOEL as a mask and inked over it with dark blue ink. Then I sprayed it with pearlised water. Then the lid fell off the spray bottle leaving some big smudges of mica. I decided to go with it - it does look less crisp, but can you have too much shimmer on a Christmas card?  Finally I added some little stars stencilled with silver glitter paste and mounted it onto silver mirror card.
