Hi, and welcome to the forums, AJGunner.

Well, you can start your search for answers by clicking and reading this post: (funny, titled the same as your title) Stencils.
You might should have read it first! Ha ha.

Here is another. Hand made digi stencile, what do you guys think of it.
and lastly, Using laminated paper as stencils

Here is a few that I recommend that you can DIY.

1. Cutouts from paper or manilla folder, shelving paper
2. 4" masking/painter's tape strips (you can stick them together to widen the surface area.)
3. airbrush masking film. You can also buy precut vinyl made for custom painting camo.

The attached links should share a few a ideas where to purchase them. (Spec Ops may offer stencils, but are not available on the web store. You can ask here if that is what you are looking for.) Good luck. Hope we can help you out if you have any more questions.

Would painters tape be good if I was trying to make my own digi pattern

Also the colours i want are green, tan, brown and black, but i want green as my prodominant colour, so would i make it my base coat or top coat

Your primary color, depending on how dense your pattern is would be the top coat.

Also, painters tape would be fine, but go to your local hobby shop and ask if they have airbrush paper. It's like a giant post-it (easily removeable) that you can cut your patterns out of.

Yes. I use the green, soft release Frog Tape (Home Depot) with good results. Dont use the blue 3-M stuff as it will bleed under the edges.

Frisket is awesome. There are even a few stretchable ones that are great for masking contours. Anyplace with airbrush supplies will have it.
