Although this template is not the one I thought I was buying, I would still recommend it. I had intended to buy the reverse of this doodling image, which is also sold here, but I am glad I got this one instead. It is the one with the trees being the solid part of the template which really gives you more versatility than the other or reversed image. You can use a spray/misting ink or a sponge type application with ink or paint, which means you can vary the background image to give a straight solid background or a glow type effect with the branches being the negative image...it is really stunning! Try adding more than one color and vary the background...you are going to love playing with this one!
First, the image here is VERY misleading...it makes it look like a stencil, which it is NOT. This is a positive shape, like a mask you would put on your page to use mist spray with.
I still love this template, as it is my favorite!
It's sometimes difficult to tell from sample images like this one, but it was exactly what I hoped: the branches themselves are the stencil, or more properly, they are a "mask" rather than a "stencil" The branches are plastic shapes that you lay over the color you want to preserve, then you apply (dab or spray) your ink/paint to the spaces between the branches. If you want a dark silhouette of branches over a pale sky, you need to start with a dark background, place the branches over that, and then use the pale sky colored opaque ink/paint between the branches of the mask.
I love using templates and the new ones from The Crafters Workshop are stellar. Branches makes a great background to build layers on. I have used this template on watercolor paper and canvas with spray dye inks for a softer line and acrylic paints and a stipple brush for harder lines. Great fun to play with.
I would have appreciated if the entire template was included as opposed to just the branches.... it could have served dual purposes
Love using this template. Several of my friends have ordered this stencil after seeing mine.
