I have a thing for colored pencils, plus I have few inks starting out. I've only used pencils with this stencil so far, and while the edges of most stencils tend to cause flecks of color to flake off, sometimes staining your project, embellishments or fussy cut/ trimmed things can almost always solve that issue. I do blow these flecks off my project frequently, and I am using not Altenew pencils.
Perhaps outlining each area, for stencils like this without too many small areas, then removing the stencil and carefully coloring, could help too.
I have not blended the coloring in any of my examples as currently I am enjoying the youthful, whimsical look and texture leaving it unblended brings.
This stripe builder makes gorgeous plaids for backgrounds. You can coordinate the ink color in your design with the background. I used blue and lilac and it was stunning!
This is a great stencil & so versatile. I used it in the traditional way but I’m going to try turning it & adding a different color.
I am always looking for ways to create male greeting cards. This stencil will be my go-to tool. I am planning to use it for stripes and plaids. The quality of the stencil cannot be beat
