Stylish Stencils


A quick post with a few more makes from the weekend.  First up is another new stencil - I absolutely love this stylish lady - I wish that I had both her eyelashes and hair :)

I simply inked through the stencil in black ink before masking off the face and embossing the hair with clear holographic powder.  I added a strip of washi tape down the side and a simple sentiment on the side.  I think it looks really striking in black and white.

I wanted to play along with The Library Challenge where the inspiration is the fabulous Memoirs of a Geisha - I loved the graphic look of the cover and was struck by the red lips which is what I focused on here.  I painted through my lips stencil with red shimmer paint and then clear embossed it for added gloss.  The sentiment is from Mama Elephant.

Both stencils are in my Folksy store.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. What an elegant lady, Sarah, and I agree about the eyelashes. The red lips are perfect for the Library challenge.

  2. Both so beautiful, but the girl really is my favorite,,, Hugs, Gerrina

  3. These big red lips are the perfect interpretation of the book cover. Thanks for joining The Library.

  4. I have tried to find the elegant lady shown at top in your store and cannot locate it. Help
