What are you most proud of? I think the stencils turned out really nice, Also, my husband suggested that I use silver for the rocket body and gold for the flame -- I think it was the right choice!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? To get a nice sharp edge to your stencil impressions, leave the contact paper on while you varnish only the leafed parts -- once the contact paper is removed the leafing is defined more sharply by the added varnish.
