My March 7 post showed a print that began with s867 Abstract Composition Backbone Mask # 4.....

..... and its next version, a multi-layered print that I developed using scissor-customized s864 Abstract Composition Backbones # 1.

Now, that multi-print has been cropped and added to the front of a greeting card.  

And over that background, I've added a cut-out from a print I'd made using 9" x 12" Tangled Pods L344. 

The photo below shows the collage on my completed greeting card cover.

One easy way to make people-shaped cut-outs is to use Valerie Sjodin's Small Figures People.  

Another way is to flip thru a clothing catalog or magazine and pick out a photo of a model.  Below:  a catalog figure and a print created with s864 Abstract Composition Backbones # 1 and s867 Abstract Composition Backbone Mask # 4.

Below:  I've used masking tape to secure the figure to the printed background.

Below:  Using fine-detail scissors, I'm cutting around the outer edges of the figure.

Below:  The figure is cut from the print.

Below:  The catalog photo is lifted off the cut-out figure.

Below:  The figure cut from the print is placed onto background paper.

Altho this figure differs from the one shown near the top of this post, the method I used was the same.  It's handy to keep in mind whenever you want to do something new and exciting with your stencil prints.  Just imagine a series of these cut-outs, cut from in a variety of colors made with a variety of stencils and masks!

Abstract Composition Backbones Masks 1, 2, 3 and 4 look like this, when still enclosed in their original 6" x 6" borders--
