Happy Hump Day, my stencil craving color enthusiasts! A recent post over at our blog friend Color Chats had us chuckling here at Cutting Edge Stencils because we can relate all too well! Does this sound like a familiar scenario… You’ve hummed and hawed over which stencil to get. Once you have finally selected it; you’re standing there going now what color do I stencil with? Don’t feel bad cause you’re definitely not alone. Everyone has struggled with what color to stencil at some point. So the next time you find yourself struggling to decide which color to stencil we have a fun game for you to play: ask yourself –Who am I? Am I Smart? Sexy? Demanding? Demure? or Practical? In today’s Stencil Stories we have fun CLUES to help you solve your stencil color mystery.
The colorful players–and suspects–of the game. Image: http://7criminalminds.blogspot.com/
We’re all familiar with the popular board game, Clue, right? Well just to refresh your memory, its the board game that takes place in a fictitious English manor house with a ballroom, billiard room, conservatory, library, and such. Then each of the characters (and suspects) are named after a different color. You can see where I’m going with this, right? So while we try to figure out what color you should be stenciling, lets toy around with what character best represents you!
|VA-VA-VOOM! Are you a sultry siren that just worships the spotlight? Then you are definitely Miss Scarlet. You love bold noticeable red, crimson, or scarlet hues. Your stencil designs are as hot and as captivating as you are! Try this Verde Damask Stencil in sizzling red and metallic gold!|
|Or maybe you are a sophisticated debonaire with a cheery disposition. Then I’ve got to say, you’re Colonel Mustard. Your rooms are upbeat yet refined, with just a hint of well-traveled danger. The colors of sun, sand and the safari suit you best. Stencil the Marrakech Trellis Stencil and your walls will shine!|
|Crisp, Neat and Orderly. Does that describe you best? Then perhaps you’re a Mrs. White. As her namesake describes, she’s a delicious purist who wouldn’t have anything other than white, white and just a pinch of stenciled white. Add a dash of Rachel’s Garden in a high gloss over a flat white for a subtle yet glamorous look!|
