If it is a stripe, and you'd like it to appear flat/blended, you could paint the stripes on with airbrush color after lightly scoring (if you'd like that flat but separate look) the design. for polka dots, apply dots of parchment (made with a hole punch)with shortening to areas where you want dotted. airbrush the color on or apply with a brush being careful not to disturb the dots. after the color has set, remove dots to reveal uncolored dots.

pncbrewer, there is a houndstooth edible image as well as a stencil that may be helpful in attaining the look on the purse.

best of luck with it...can't wait to see the finished items!

You are welcome. I'm glad I could help.

seedrv, I like those! Being clear, they'd be easy to place and probably a lot less stress worrying about smearing one stenciling with the next stencil placement, and she could just color in the black areas.

(I need to get back to that site! I haven't been there in FOREVER! It's obvious they've got stuff I either overlooked, didn't want/need at the time, or it's just outright new...thanks for sharing the link in this thread!)
