Sorry, ladies. I wish I could shed some light on the stencils, but these have never been used. I took them out-looked at them-put them back in the package! I would think that you could use a marker to fill it in or use a sponge dauber and ink pad, but I think you would need to use lighter colors if you wanted to use it as a journaling tag/box.
clean up with soap & water.
I WILL ONLY SHIP IN THE U.S.
