I found my brass stencils after thinking they were long lost. Looking for ideas for using them again. Thanks!

Chalk or use daubers with my ink pads.

Use the tan embossing pad from spellbinders and emboss stock in the cuttlebug.


ETA: Just saw you're looking for coloring ideas...sorry, but, you can dry emboss with them then use chalks to add some shading to the surface of the dry embossed areas to further accent them.

Check out the blogs of the dreamweavers (stencil brand) dream team. They had a blog hop not long ago and posted some awesome projects using all different techniques. I'm sure there are some on the home site as well.

I color mine with colored pencils or copic markers if I really want a bolder color. To add a little shine or make a part of the stamped image stand out, I add a layer of glossy accents on top of the color. The fun part is to play with various combination's.
