and I decided to give it a go for Xmas - yeah I know  Roll Eyes it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Anyway I've lurked here long enough so time I did a show and tell I guess.
This one was for my SIL and it's the one I'm most pleased with.  The writing is a in joke as she hate's it when my brother goes off on his bike without her.


The OCC one was for my brother - he a BIG fan.  It didn't turn out as well as I hoped but he was over the moon with it and I now have an order for one for his middle son who's drooling over his dads.  Least next attempt I'll know where I went wrong (not enough paint)

The chucks were for my youngest nephew who has no major hobbies but is a pre-teen boy so I figured I couldn't go far wrong with a pair of chucks  Undecided  This one turned out not so bad even though it was a nightmare to cut out.


This one was disappointing as my cardstock got welded on at some points Sad  Love the image and will definately be trying it again.  I didn't have time to wash it once I'd set the paint but I'm hoping the card will wash off.


My kids and hubby are all sulking because I haven't stencilled them anything yet but I'm trying to find some plain t shirts first - Scotland in winter, how many t shirts do you think are in the shops? Cheesy

Thanks for looking at my 'attempts.'

Well, for a first time stenciller, I'm impressed! I have to say that the Chucks are my favorite. Hmmm...we have tons of short sleeve T's available here at the local craft chain store. When they go on sale, they are pretty cheap! I could send a few...in exchange for a printed Chucks shirt...

Let me know (and colors and sizes)- they go on sale all the time!

Tiffie - I printed the stencils on card stock, covered in contact paper, spent ages cutting so long I had a very sore finger  Cheesy and stuck the card to the shirt with a quick spray of adhesive.  Obviously too much adhesive on the one that the card welded to the shirt Smiley  Suggestions for better attempts welcomed with open arms.

Are you certain you're a first timer.
Those are quite remarkable.
Not just the quality of the print job but the original image and cuts are clean as well.
Only advice I can give is that you can use regular paper covered in packaging tape.(ghetto lamination) it works like a charm and it's easier to cut that contact covered cardstock.
Great work!

Thanks for the comments  Kiss
Yes honestly that was my first attempt at stenciling, think my last one was potato stamps at playgroup  Cheesy
Parcel tape on cardstock?  I've only ever seen brown parcel tape, can you get clear parcel tape? or perhaps i could used sellotape but that's very narrow?  I didn't have too much trouble cutting through the contact paper and cardstock but I did have a very sore finger because I cut stencil after stencil out in one night.  I will definately be giving your suggestion a go thanks Esko.
