This one is a simple shadow shape - no layering. I got the image from a scroll saw magazine! I have thought for a while that patterns used for scroll sawing could easily be converted and made into die cut images to cut with my Cricut. I was right! This image came from the Fall, 2009, Issue 36 of the "Scroll Saw Woodworkng & Crafts magazine". I simply scanned it into my computer using my all-in-one printer/scanner, saved it as a .gif, .jpeg, or .tiff image file and then imported it into Inkscape and with just a few keystrokes turned it into an .svg file for use with the SCAL software to cut with my Cricut!
There were also some Halloween patterns in this edition of the magazine. I have been working on one of those and have some more scanned in to work on. I hope to get one or more of those posted in the next few days. So, when looking for images to convert to .svg and import into SCAL don't forget those scroll saw patterns! (I also have lots of painting patterns that I think could easily be done! LOL Oh so many images and so little time!!)
