    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • #12 flat brush
    • cosmetic sponge

    1. Basecoat the frame Festive Green using a #12 flat brush.
    2. Position the stencil element on the frame as desired.
    3. Load a cosmetic sponge with Emperor's Gold. Pounce the sponge on the palette or plastic plate a few times to remove excess paint and then pounce color over stencil openings.
    4. Reposition the stencil in different areas of the frame and continue sponging with Emperor's Gold. Remove the stencil.
    5. Use the handle end of a brush to dot over the stenciled images with Dark Patina, Worn Penny, and Emperor's Gold. (Refer to photo for placement or create your own combination.)
