I wanted the finished look to be like old stone with moldy shading like you see on gravestones that are a couple of hundred years old. To achieve this color I used Memento Luxe ink in the Espresso Truffle color and applied it with an applicator.
I did this with each of the stencils and then folded the box together. I brought in a splash of color by using tissue tape on some of the seams. I did all of the sides of the box this way and here is how they came out.
These are fun stencils. I know someone around here will catch a cold this year and need a laugh when they feel "half dead". Thanks for stopping in today, I'll be back next Tuesday with more stenciling ideas. Until then, take care. Hugs~ Renee
There is a blog hop going on right now if you are interested in seeing the work of some great artists and maybe winning a set of these stencils for your own collection!
