This was hard...I had to play around with it and cut out intricate pieces...what the heck was I thinking but I'm satisfied with it...nonetheless there's gotta be an easier way!  I wasn't too happy at first...the black shirt seemed to soak up the butterfly and I used 3 coats of paint....but it has grown on me...like a ghost image.  I used red paint but it looks orange.

ohh well i think this stencil was worth all the trouble... it looks awesome! I find with some of my paints they really dont show up well on some darker clothes... but i find if i add a bit of white.. which is really strong it shows the colour better.. yeh it does change the colour a bit... but i spose its up to the artist Smiley
I love it the way it is... fantastic Smiley
