Dreamweaver tree stencil

I finally got round to using one of my new Dreamwaver stencils...not with the Embossing paste I bought it with though! I'm not quite brave enough to try that yet in case it goes horrible wrong, so I inked through the stencil with black ink onto card instead. I then added stickles to each of the dotty leaves, I think it has a fab effect. You could use gems too...if you want to use that many up on one card!
I've used:
Dreamweaver stencil and DI ink Black Soot
Personal Impressions greeting stamp.
Laurence Lewellen Bowen papers
Ribbon, stickles and black gems from stash.
