Painting shoulder pads...

Anyone who has ever painted space marines has had to deal with painting shoulder pads.  This afternoon I thought I would try something different.  I thought that I would try to make a stencil with blue painters tape. 
Started with base-coated Shoulder Pads

Next I drew a tact squad arrow on the tape

Then I painted the color I wanted the Arrows on the Pads

After cutting out a couple of arrows I then placed them
I then painted over the stencil with the base color
After pulling the stencil off it looked alright
Finally a little touch up paint!
On the model
For being a first attempt at stenciling on the Tactical Squad Symbol, I think it looks pretty good.  questions and comments are welcome!
