Tag-shaped stencil measures 4 1/8" x 8 1/2". Includes convenient hole in top to attach with a basic book ring (not included).
Here's what Tim says about these new stencils...
"Introducing layering stencils. There is no doubt the use of stencils in art and mixed media are definitely the latest must have tools. I wanted to desgn stencils that were a little more imperfect as a way to add texture and imagery along with my stamps. So what better way to achieve that than to work with Stampers Anonymous to bring some of my most popular stamp designs to life as stencils. I have to say that I couldn't be happier with the final outcome, and trust me, when you see the grungy detail of these layering stencils you will be happy too..."

Right up front, I knew what I was getting into here. These mortar lines are truly tiny. They all connect but tiny, tiny. This is in the mile high misting category. This is the fairy footprints light tapping paint or Pan Pastels. Even the blending tool and Distress ink pads was a challenge.
The reason why? That network of tiny lines move up and down, and back and forth, kind of like running your finger over a grocery store produce bag laid on a table. The stencil material is thick but those lines are not. Also those thin lines just do not have enough weight or sticktion to prevent even dry media from going underneath.
It is possible to get the brickwork effect to come out. It's just not easy and it does take some trial and error. The other layering stencils I've bought are much better. I'd say pass on this one. If you need background bricks there are a number of other methods on the web that will get the effect you need. Rating:
