Place a piece of cardboard on top of a stiff board to prevent the blade breaking because the hard surface will not come into contact with the blade.

The bright part will be the part that is covered by the stencil material will cover the white part hence do not edit this part. You can add the island to the image so that the bright spot is connected to the rest of the main stencil.
