Hi! I made this stenciled tee for my partner in the "what are you listening while crafting" cd swap. I really like it, so I am posting the pic that she kindly took hoping that you'll like it too :-)
I modified a cassette tape image I found on the internet, and then added a japanese text. You can download the b/w graphic I used here: http://www.localloop.org/blog/uploads/Immagini/stencil_craftster.jpg I printed out the image on freezer paper, then coated it with clear scotch tape, then I cut out the stencil using a cutter. Then I realized I couldn't iron the freezer paper on the shirt anymore since the iron would melt the tape  Embarrassed So I lightly sprayed the back of the stencil with glue, and put it on the t-shirt. I applied the color using a thick sponge.. (oh, of course you have to put a newspaper or something inside the t-shirt, or the color will bleed through) Next time I am going to try a sponge roller that I just bought. Since I'm a lazy gal, I didn't want to wait for it to dry, so I blew-dried it a bit, and then ironed it. I think it came out nicely!

I covered it in plastic (scotch tape is the cheapest way) because I noticed that with plain freezer paper the paint bleeds more easily. After a lot of dabbing with then sponge, the paper gets wet, expecially near the corners and small cutout details... I don't know, maybe it's a stupid idea.. but it works for me.  Cheesy

what does the japanese say?
it says "tzuzuku", which means "to be continued".. it's a typical thing you see at the end of an episode of japanese animation series! Well at least the old ones, from the 80's.  Wink
