Qwertee provide you with a downloadable mock up kit with all the possible different coloured T-shirts they use, potential backgrounds for your T-shirt to be shown on, and the opportunity for you to put your creative spin on your design.

Once I understood this, I uploaded my image onto this file, changed the colour of the T-shirt and moved it to the right hand side. I did this so I could fit a close up of my image in the background so that viewers can see a detailed version of the image. My main problem was deciding what colour to have my background; I knew I wanted to have it a shade of blue so the image doesn't look too different from the T-shirt, so I picked 2 shades from the T-shirt and tried them both out:
The lighter blue gives the image a brighter impression, but the darker blue allows you to see every colour more clearly. Despite this the darker blue is a much similar shade to the T-shirt, so it doesn't stand out as much as they are too similar. It's because of this I decided to use the lighter shade, the most important aspects of the image are the detailed version and seeing the T-shirt in a full layout; as long as both are visible and the T-shirt looks good then I am happy with the image.
