Quilling on silk


         After a long anxious week , Abi's tenth standard CBSE results were finally announced and Abi got all A1s and got the group he was hoping for. I am a typical Indian mother ,my kid's academic performance is most important to me. Relieved, I sat down to make this card.


      The background for this card is a silk cloth that I had saved with a lot of other materials that remain from my sewing. I followed Ashmitha's video tutorial to stick the fabric on to the paper . She does warn about using silk but this particular material is quite thick and heavy and so the glue does not show on the other side. I am really happy that it worked so well. The quilling also sticks quite well on to this fabric. 




     The glue does show more than on paper so had to be very careful. I cut out handmade paper with craft scissors for the border.


     Thanks for stopping by, Have a nice day.
