Quilled Lilac

      Lilacs always fascinate me. To achieve the layered effect of the flowers in quilling is ever a challenge. I have quilled lilacs before the variation here is I used tight coils for the petals.
All the strips are three millimetres in lavender , yellow and two shades of green.
      I rolled an entire pack of 100 strips of lavender to make exactly 25 small flowers. I arranged and then stuck them to give a layered finish.
       Thanks for stopping by, Have a great day.

Seventieth Birthday card.

         I was requested to make a card for a seventieth birthday.For this card I tried to use some bold colours. I cut out purple colour card stock only for the outline of the number 70. The flowers are made using purple and yellow 3mm strips. The centres are fringed out of 5mm yellow colour strips.
        Thanks for stopping by have a great day.
