    7. Around the words "Craft Supplies", use the large astroid from Americana Reusable Stick-On Astroid Stencil and a new cosmetic sponge with Deep Turquoise to pounce on four circles. Wash stencil.

    9. Use the #1 round brush and Dolphin to fill in the words "Craft Supplies". Use the #1 liner brush to mix (1) part Cotton Ball with (1) part Dolphin. Use the mix to highlight the letters. Rinse brush. Use the same brush and Deep Turquoise to shade behind the letters. Rinse brush.

(It is optional to help hold the stencil in place with painter's tape.)
