Boo! Halloween just snuck up on you! If the thought of getting through all of those upcoming cookie orders is a bit scary, have no fear! Julia’s August 2021 Dynamic Duos™ stencil design, called Bad to the Bone, will make a big impact with a minimum of airbrushing. Its spooky skeleton portraits and pumpkin damask “wallpaper” look great in just one color, applied in varying shades. Though, of course, if you’re a more-is-more person like Julia, you can add colors and stencil overlays to greater degrees.

Remember, all of Julia’s Dynamic Duos™ sets are designed in pairs: one set with the graphic elements (in this case, the pumpkin damask background, jack-o-lantern face overlay, and two skull portraits) and another set with the complementary messages and frames. As you can see in the gallery images, both sets can be used alone or together; they can also be purchased bundled or separately. The bundled price is listed here.
