Before showing you my latest
masterpiece project, this photo floated into my FB account last week and I felt I had to share it - my elder brother took it from a helicopter flying over Cradle Mountain last week. Why he was there and who paid for it are questions that have not been answered, but the photo is quite spectacular, so I shared it with you! Yes, it snowed last week. Mostly Cradle is in cloud so any photo of it is amazing.
So, on to Quilling.....
Here was a chance to use that quilling comb! I found out something that it could do apart from chase lice- make the leaves.
So I played around and made some leaves, and several sizes of quilled flowers and circles and stuff - how Meg makes those fringed flowers I do not know! You have to put those leaves on their edge - glueing them was a joy. So was creating the 'fringe' by cutting tiny slits all along the edge of a strip of thin quilling paper BEFORE you twirl it all together
I think my card is too small or the leaves are too big
It doesn't look anything like the picture I was following but I am happy enough.
The sentiment is die cut (IO Dies)
Might do some more now- as long as it doesn't involve fringing!
Off you go........
