Quilled card


             This card is inspired by ICR4 colour splash- black and white with hues of blue. ICR4
         I made this husked butterfly , I already had a blue colour fringed flower which I used in this card. Really simple one but not so easy for me , just using these colours.I punched out some flowers for the background . 

         I would like to thank all my blogger friends who encourage me with their kind words and make me like my work more than I did to start with. When it is not easy to craft through the ups and downs ,which is typical of life , the comments that I read make me believe in what I am doing . Thank you all for making blogging so enjoyable .


     I sometimes drop my flower into this small bowl (this is half of the round box in which gems chocolate came) to angle the petals a bit. I have stuck a small cone shaped paper at the bottom which also helps keep the shape.
       



        Inspired by Ann Martin's post on Aluminium quilling, I tried a very simple quilling by cutting out a used can. Ann's post shows some intricate work ,do take a look if you haven't yet. If you would like to see how I did it I have some more pictures here.



         My Crepe flower card made it to the top three at ICR3 ,
         My monochromatic card made it to the top three at kavitha's guest challenge and won the take a quill pill challenge for may.

         Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.
