Cutting Edge Stencils Review and Giveaway… { Stenciled Hoodie Tutorial }

How many of you have tried stenciling? I am a newbie and when Cutting Edge Stencils offered us an opportunity to try out one of their fabulous stencils, well, I took the plunge! They have so many beautiful stencils to choose from, in both craft and wall sizes!
 I knew I wanted to do something a little different, and out of the box for stenciling. My daughter had been eyeing some embellished hoodies and the light bulb went off…

Isn’t it precious! I used the Butterfly Bloom #3 Wall Art Stencil. I think it turned out incredible and she is thrilled!
Here is a very quick look at what I did…
I gathered my supplies…
1. Hoodie
3.Paint and Fabric Medium
4.Sponge Painter
I used painter’s tape to stabilize the stencil on the hoodie. I centered it on the back of the hoodie. I also place a large piece of poster board underneath to protect my table! :)
Next I applied the paint using the sponge. Don’t you just love the lilac color?! I waited for it to dry and…
The detail is amazing, I was super pleased with that! I followed the directions on the fabric medium for finishing the sealing of the paint.
My girl was thrilled with the finished result and so was I! The Cutting Edge Stencils are thick and great quality. They held up super during this project and I had no issues with bleeding along the edges. I will be able to use this stencil for many more projects!
Need some extra help to get started,
Cutting Edge Stencils has a great video to show you how to use their stencils…

    I need an alternative to wallpaper in my bathroom since it is not well ventilated. I’m tired of plain paint and this would be perfect…I love their Scallop Allover Stencil and it reminds me of Art Deco and would be perfect for my bathroom
