The topic: Today, I shall attempt to make a car decal


We have a couple on the back of the Escape, Disney decals. One is an orange Tigger decal, the other used to be a chrome Tinker Bell, sitting cross legged. The chrome has worn off and she's just white now. With each car washing, small pieces of these decals are coming off. I bought them right after we got the car, so it's been about five or six years that they've been on.

I looked through Disney coloring pages yesterday and found a Tigger like the one we already have, but no Tink like the one we have. And then I got the idea of making a Tinker Bell decal with different colors. I have the vinyl, when I got my first Silhouette machine, I also bought a lot of different colored vinyl. Pretty much one of every color available (grasshopper days, I tell you, grasshopper days). They've been stored in a cool dark spot and should be okay.

I picked out a light flesh color for her skin, yellow for the pom poms on her slippers and her hair, a limish green for her dress and slippers. There's also an "etched" vinyl, which I assume looks like etched glass, so I'll use that for her wings. I do need to find a nice blue for her eyes.

Not having done anything so detailed, I'm kind of nervous about it, but I think I have somewhat of a handle on it after the last couple of years shirts I did for our Disney meet.  With Brian's help in choosing, I ordered some clear colored vinyl from Amazon yesterday. One roll is ice blue, the other is a holographic blue. We might try those as wings, but I'm pretty sure we will use at least one of them for the stars. If the etched vinyl looks good for the wings, we'll use both of the clear vinyl for the stars.

The Tigger decal should be pretty straightforward.
