Mysterious Man Stencil

I am totally addicted to this guy from spraypaintstencils.com.   A quick and sloppy border of my favorite color  and it was starting to talk to me.

I looked for words to create the story and sure enough, they were there.  I used a black pen and glossy accents to make the words pop.  Then I wrote words all around the border that went with the story of this mysterious man.

Black is a great color, because it hides so many other colors!  The Distress Ink in mustard seed that was rubbed around the center was quick but I needed a darker color.  Spiced marmalade in Distress inks darkened it up nicely.  The words stayed neutral because the ink won’t stick to the glossy accents.

    Thanks Cynthia! This guy totally kept me from doing what I should have been doing, but it was so much more fun to do art than real work!
