Step one - tape down stencil no 1 and apply lightest colour to stencil. Remove and clean stencil
Step two - tape down stencil no 2 and apply mid tone colour, I always hold the stencil as well as taping down. Now remove and clean this stencil.
Step three - tape down stencil no 3, now either use your darker colour or use a texture paste or similar medium through the stencil. Now remove the clean stencil.
Step four - you can now take the masks included in th package and place over the main images and apply stamping and colour around the edges.
I love the effect these stencils give. They work fabulously on canvases and bags etc.
