Default Dye ideas for a pink Force

K, so I finally got my hands on a new Z force. One problem, its redish pink with purple stamp. Though highly visible, its not quite my style. I'm looking for a cool design I could put on it. I'm thinking a simple black dye of some sort or simple pattern, maybe some 3 or 4 sided blade design. Anyone have any stencil images that look good, or other thoughts to make it look nice? My comfort level of stencil work as far as intricate cutting is about what you see in my avatar, so nothing too wild.

If you are looking for simple, black dyes, check out some of my dyes in my album.
No problem w/ you copying anything (if you see something you like, that is).

you wouldn't happen to have an image file of the stencil you used for this by any chance?

A buddy of mine put Yoda on his pink Force. The hardest part was getting the wrinkles on the face proper.

No, that was drawn using a compass and a steel ruler.

(Sorry for not getting back sooner...)

Thanks for ideas all. Keep em coming as I have an orange ESP force awaiting a Dye job at some point.

To Fixit: yeah I see how its done. How would you recommend doing the cutting and transfer as all those pieces appear to be free and unconnected to each other. Should I cut them completely then mask them over with the tape, or apply the transfer tape, then finish the cuts on the tape?

I cut directly on the disc *gasp!*. Since most of my dyes are of the simple, geometric type, I apply the contact paper (yes, plain old contact paper) directly to the disc.
I then proceed to ensure there are no bubbles, draw my design on, then cut it out. I use a nice sharp exacto blade, and DO NOT apply alot of pressure, just enough to cut the paper. Weed and proceed...
Hope that helps!
