I think this would go here...

So, my other three roommates received knitted gifts, but I couldn't think of something to make for Roommate #4.  One day, I realized that I could combine his love of Dr. Who with the fact that we never have enough drinking glasses.  Three glasses from the Sal-v later (one broke before I could do anything with it)...

One has the TARDIS, the other has a dalek.  Here they are in close-up:

The stencils bled a little bit, but I'm pleased overall.  Roommate #4 later told me that daleks are his favorite.  ^_^

Those are awesome! I love how they bled a little, it gives them character, I believe! XD

What kind of stencil-stuff did you use? {Tape, contac paper, etc} ?

I used contact paper and etching cream, and applied it with a stencil brush.

Wow these are great, Did you draw the Tardis and Daleks yourself or copy them from a picture?

Art exists in many forms, the trick is to see all of them.
