arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhhh bleeeeeurgh humph
I am so sad, I just finished an awesome, imho, stencil for my father for x-mas and then I dropped the painty sponge onto the t-shirt! Please please please help me figure out how to cover it up!!!!
SO, the t-shirt is part of a jokey sort of "bird flu survival kit". This is what it currently looks like complete with ugly random blob

I got the stencil from this website http://photobucket.com/albums/v189/_stencils_/Miscellaneous/Vintage%20Humor/ and made up the bottom phrase, which I still need to stencil on. I was also going to put a picture in the blank space on the beer bottle, maybe of a chicken with x  eyes. I don't know how to cover the blob though without it detracting too much from the rest of the shirt. I would LOVE suggestions, thanks so much

make a frame around the image in the same color paint?  very funny shirt, your dad should love it!

The blob kinda looks like a chicken head (the small pointy right side being the beak, and the larger fanned part the neck feathers).You could make paint it into a chicken, and even make some more! (I'd practice on paper first though). I wouldn't try to cover it up with white paint.
One more thing you would do, depending on how you chose the actual shirt, would be to cut out the stencilled area and stitch it onto a shirt of another color (blue to match?). It would have the picture frame effect, a la the previous reply, but it would look very unique and hip on a non-white backdrop.

the spot looks like a flying bird to me-- maybe define it a little and add a couple V-looking brids to make it look like a flock?

paint on some horizontal or vertical stripes over it, it would keep it simple and look good

Thanks for all your replies and great suggestions
Yeah, flying birds or bird heads would look good cristinabeena and skaramouche, I can picture them all swarming around with evil killer eyes but that would involve more stenciling and thus more opportunities to screw up again! I do want to keep it simple like eccoxile suggested but again the though of painting on the stripes scares me. If the blob was a bit closer to the picture I would do the frame erikau but I think I will have to buy a new shirt like cristinabeena  suggested and sew it on as a patch.
Thanks guys, I am feeling *slightly* better about this mistake now, it's always good when a mistake spawns even better ideas and possibilites
