    • water container

    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    Work on one rose at a time, allowing each section to dry before moving onto a new section and then onto another rose.

    1. Find a plain canvas container; any size will work. (Mine was 6.5"x 7.5" x 5.5")
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Gather the supplies, including the Smell the Roses SoSoft Stencil.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Stuff the container with items to flatten the surface for painting. (I used books.)
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Place the Smell the Rose stencil where you want the pattern to lay on the container.
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Paint the leaves by dabbing Emerald (Metallic) onto the stencil with a sponge dauber. Rinse out the dauber and dry with a paper towel. Dab on some Aquamarine (Metallic) into the leaves for some added dimension. (See photo: I removed the stencil here just to show the variation in colors.)
    10. Instruction #5
    11. For the buds on the stencil, dab on Pearl (Metallic).
    12. Instruction #6
    13. Dab Pink Tourmaline (Metallic) onto the tips of the rose buds.
    14. Instruction #7
    15. For one of the larger roses, dab on Amethyst (Metallic).
    16. Instruction #8
    17. Use Raspberry Quartz (Metallic) to highlight the rose petals.
    18. Instruction #9
    19. For the next rose, use a cleaned dauber to dab Ruby (Metallic) onto the stencil surface.
    20. Instruction #10
    21. For the last rose, dab on Pink Tourmaline (Metallic) and then some Pearl (Metallic) as a soft highlight to the petals.
    22. Instruction #11
    23. Use a liner brush to outline the bottoms of the petals shapes Obsidian (Metallics) to give the stenciled image some more dimension.
    24. Instruction #12
    25. Using Obsidian (Metallic) and the small dauber, make polka dots in the empty space surrounding the stenciled roses.
    26. Instruction #13
    27. With a clean liner brush, add some highlights on the petal shapes using Pearl (Metallic).
    28. Instruction #14
    29. This project is a fun way to add a design to a plain container. Use the same design for a variety of projects.
    30. Instruction #15
