Re-grouting Cracks in Exterior Mortar

We are repairing cracks in our old stone exteriors mortar and are having a hard time matching exactly (I guess because the old mortar is 20 years old). We used a 3:1 brown sand to white cement mixture which seems to be as close as we are getting to the old color. *Note* Cracks in the photo were made by our mason to repoint the stone.

Trying to get the exterior look of the second photo. Does anyone know how to achieve this? I know it’s an over grouted look but if there a way to white wash what we have to get that more uniform old world look?

Thank you!

Current stone finish

Bottom photo is the look I would like
