quilled flower card

       



          I always find photographing my quilled work difficult ,  I sometimes find the colours not true to the real one. My brother thinks it is my camera and that I need to get one with more pixels. Though I cut strips for quilling I prefer pre cut strips. Here, in the craft stores I only get multicolour strips and when I need a lot of the same colour strips I  have to cut 


       For this card too I have cut strips and tried to do something new with the green strips( I have seen this technique on lot of other blogs).  


       I feel so happy when  someone  tells me I have inspired them to quill. I have people where I live asking me to teach and I have also seen people start quilling after buying my cards . I introduced quilling to my students this summer ,my hope is that quilling becomes popular in India ( that way I can get quilling paper easily and I don't have to go half across my city to get it).


      Thanks for stopping by , Have a great day.

Very pretty design, Suganthi. I'm not surprised at all that your quilling inspires others - it inspires me! When I look at the stats for my blog, India is tied for second place with England and Canada for the most visitors, so there must be quite a few quillers near you. You just haven't met them yet. :-)

suganthi madam ,I have a suggestion to make if you are not satisfied with the photo you can edit your photo in adobe photoshop.Just increase the brightness/contrast to suit the image.Your photos will be fine

Gorgeous design Suganthi. I love the dense look of the petals and the green quilling around them is really beautiful. Well, one thing for sure, you continue to inspire me. If I didn't love stamping so much I would be prepared to only do quilling.Thanks once again for sharing your exquisite designs.x
