By ealovitt HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on March 5, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains 153 royalty-free silhouettes, many of them very elegant. I copy and cut them out to decorate greeting cards (see customer image above for a card using one of the silhouettes of a lady in a hat), but they would also make lovely framed subjects, especially in pairs. The silhouettes include landscapes, numerous ladies in elaborate headdresses, butterflies, flowers, and fairies. There are a few animal silhouettes, but if that is what you're really looking for, try Dover's "Ready-to-Use Animal Silhouettes (Dover Clip Art Ready-to-Use)."

Other supplies needed to create the silhouettes for greeting card decorations include an X-acto craft knife with extra packages of #11 blades, a pair of small-bladed scissors, a printer/copier, Scherenschnitte paper (black on one side and white on the reverse side), a good cutting surface, and glue in a container with a small tip (alternatively, squeeze out a blob of glue and apply it to the reverse side of the cut-out with a toothpick).

This is one of my favorite and most-used clip art books - full of fairies, dragons, mermaids, butterflies, dancing people, and more. I typically use it as a resource for making handcarved stamps for my journal. I highly recommend it!

This book is strictly pictures of sihouettes. There aren't any tips or techniques, but it has a sleuth of pics that can be easily intergrated into one's art. However, I find there are a lot of female, fairy, and butterfly images, but this is what I was looking for. They are mostly vintage-themed as well (Victorian and 40-50's?).

This is my favorite stencil book and CD. I have a computerized plotter that lets me use the CD silhouettes to create vinyl patterns for sandblasting glass and for making copper overlays for stained glass items. I love the wide selection of patterns in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone.

The designs in this book are just great for the papercutter and can easily be used in other craft projects. I recommend this book.

I especially love the butterfly patterns! This is only a collection of patterns. There are no instructions so you need to already know how to use the book.
