Now that pixelation is complete, the time has come to make sure that
the stencil color is sufficiently distinct from the sixteen existing
colors. Currently, the stencil color is: #eeddcc which is kind of a
light beige. Let me know your suggestions.

To assist, here is a link to a random web-color-testing page with all
of the TF (CGA) colors and my proposed stencil color on the far right:

You can click left and right arrows above each column to move them
around and play around with different colors as a stencil to see how
distinct it looks. And you can change the color hex value at the top
of the column with the stencil color to substitute your own idea.

Here is also a link to a web-colors page which provides a mapping
between various human readable color names and what their hex code is:

Please give me any suggestions you might have about what you want the
stencil color should be.

For me a stencil outline will be better. One that is completely transparent.

it looks great to me. It has a contrast with all the other colors ...
even the yellow and white so I think it would work well. Are the
stencils going to be semi-transparent? If so, it's hard to tell what
it will look like with a different opacity.
