Quilled eye chart thank you card.



     As a part of observing world Glaucoma week(couple of weeks ago), a hospital near by offered the women members of our library free eye check up for glaucoma .Though I couldn't take the offer lot of our members did and so a thank you card for the kind doctor for her valuable time. 
    I was asked to make the thank you card,  and as I thought about an ophthalmologist the first thing that came to my mind was  the dreaded eye chart.




    For the eye chart (THANK YOU DOCTOR) ,I stuck at least six strips of thick black strips for the first row and then four strips for the second , two strips for the third and single strip for the last row. The letterings I found most difficult and time consuming. The flowers are a bright violet colour , but doesn't show in this picture.


      For the butterfly , I have used eccentric coils . I have stuck three different colour strips for the wings.


Update  : Katrin has a neat tutorial for these flowers in her blog.


    Thanks for stopping by, Have a wonderful day.

Wow Suganthi ji, how did you get the flowers same width? Mine always tend to go wayward either at the top or middle. Such perfection! And the butterfly is adorable too.
