Quilled poppies


       I have been wishing to quill poppies for a long time. When I started with this card I first tried out Inna's tutorial . I am not so good at using pins for husking and I still need lot of practice. The flower turned out well but too big to use in a card.


    Then I went back to making the petals with one of my favourite techniques - the eccentric circle. I love how the flowers turned out  .I  referred many images and cliparts before arranging the flowers , leaves and buds. For the leaves and stems I used 5mm quilling paper . The flowers are made using 3mm quilling paper. I stuck three quilling paper along their lengths to make the stems.

    I received a request for a card with something new and I thought I should try out the poppies which for a long time looked like a lot of work. I am thankful to my sweet customer who was very patient even when I took  many days to finish her order. It is so difficult to work with Chennai temperature rising to intolerable heights and it looks like a busy month to me with so many weddings.

    Thanks for stopping by, Have a creative day.

I don't know how I missed seeing your poppies until now Suganthi, but they are so pretty! I admire your eccentric coils. I never seem to have the patience to make them even though I love the way they look. I hope you're tolerating the heat as best you can.

I love that! I just started looking for blogs about paper quilling. I wish I could make things this elaborate and beautiful. If you were in the US I would totally want to take a class from you!
