They are very simple, but can be used in so many ways, singly or in combination, depending on their orientation.
I stamped several sheets of white paper, using an india ink stamp pad, then cut the pages into 1" strips.
The strips were then cut into 1" squares.
I played around with their placement, and finally settled on the above design.
The silhouette was done with a Dyan Reaveley stencil (by Ranger) in black acrylic paint. One of the things I like most about silhouette stencils, as opposed to stamps, is that you can use it on either side, so your silhouette can face in the direction you want.
I finished it off with an outline of white machine stitching. I'm toying with the idea of adding one pop of color, maybe a red hat, but haven't made up my mind.
