Just in at the Nook-

Heidi Swap's Masks Finally!
These are great but hard to get!!! Like stencils but the reverse. They are made of vinyl with repositional adhesive on the back.
Just place down on your surface & spray: Glimmer Mists, Color Wash, Spray paint or just acrylic paint over them.
Then lift of and the image will be the color of your base surface! Wow!
