quilling comb



      I saw this exact design in the quilled creations gallery and wanted to try it.We need a quilling comb to create this pattern. I have used an ordinary comb to make this flower. I used this colour just to try out the technique but liked it and so have used it in my card.
    Its right for craftyJC challenge I think.
       

      To make one petal take a strip of 3mm width quilling paper.According to the length required loop it around the teeth of the comb as shown.



      
      Stick at the bottom now loop around a tooth lower than the first ( I have looped around the very next one) and stick at the bottom to keep the shape.




      Bring the loop to the alternate side and insert inside the gap between the two teeth to form a loop on the other side.




      This way alternate the loops on both sides and stick the end to the bottom of the petal when you are done.




       Now slide off the petal from the comb .All the while be sure not to stick the strip to the comb.






       I have stuck three strips two yellows and one red in the middle and have made a tight coil for the center.
