Cricut stencils

I made this apron for my beautiful daughter, Bri who is working as a cook at a camp this summer. My family has a passion for word plays, so they were a must for this project.  

I started by cutting shapes  from the kitchen cartridge.  Then I laid wax paper over the shapes I was not using and sponged paint into the area I wanted.  You can see that I goofed and went outside the line.  Luckily for me, I was able to rub it off.  I used plain old craft paint.  You know it doesn't wash out of clothes, if you ever gotten any on you!  (I've also painted rugs successfully.) Finally, I outlined the shapes with a black paint marker and added the words with a white paint marker.  She loved it and so do I!
