Another mehndi hand, this one the classic eye in the palm. Stencil is from Balzar Designs by The Crafter’s Workshop. The stencil has six hand designs on it in this size, and the same designs are available reduced on a separate stencil. Paper foundation to canvas board, Golden Light Modeling Paste thru the stencil to give the image height and texture, then painted with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints. The stitching lines are these awesome little pre-inked stamps called Sew Stamper from We R Memory Keepers that you run along the image where you want the line to appear. They have about half a dozen stitch styles, are easy to use and really give this project a “crazy quilt” vibe. Words were rubber stamped with Staz-On ink, my favorite. I am not affiliated with any of these companies, these are my “go-to” supplies at the moment and I just want to share the info.
