DIY Stenciled Napkin~Copy Cat Challenge

I'm so excited to share this post with y'all today. I've been a real copy cat on this project. ha,ha,

I had seen Debbie's adorable stenciled napkin some time back and have wanted to make one ever since. A couple of weeks ago Hobby Lobby finally got the same stencil in that she used and I couldn't grab it up quick enough. Well, just a mere two days later, Debbie announced that she would be having a Copy Cat Challenge and I knew exactly what I would enter.

 September 27th
Come by and join all the fun!

I gathered my cloth napkins and my new stencil and got to work.

I love how the napkin turned out.
Actually instead of paint for the stenciling, I used a permanent black cloth pen to do the lettering.

The next two photos are from Debbie's Version
Notice how I had my paint & brush laid out just like Debbie.
Yep, I stopped at nothing to copy her, except I wasn't willing to paint the kitchen table. lol

Below are the two side by side.
Debbie's on the left and mine on the right.

Am I pretty close to Debbie's version??
I do have books, rolling pin, blue bowl and a chicken 
and the adorable stenciled napkin.
(sorry no rooster or scale, granite counter or sink , window sill or tomatoes) 
You get the picture BUT I do have the Stenciled Napkin.  
Hey, that counts~right??

Don't forget to go by Debbie's to see the rest of the Copy Cats at work.

From the Heart,

  3. Great copy cat. When I was in the states in Aug I didn't see that stencil at Hobby Lobby .
    Too bad they don't ship to Canada.

  4. Excellent job! You recreated the look very nicely!

  5. Hi Jana, awesome copy. Yours is warmer and I love the look. What a great project! Thanks for sharing your lovely rendition.

  6. oh my gosh, how fabulous that you copied of the original copycatter! yours looks amazing!

  7. Great job, Jana! I love this stencil, too. I always forget to look at the stencils at Hobby Lobby; I'm usually intent on getting my scrapbook paper or fabric. I need to make sure I check them out next time I'm there.

  8. Hey Jana ... Lots of fun to Copy the Queen of Copy-Kats. You did an excellent job. I have that stencil, but it is still clean. Should change that and do a stencil. I have lots of cutting boards that could use something.
