Quilled flower



         This post is quite in contrast with my previous one:). I made this flower as a trial by cutting out two shades of violet colour strips. It turned out really pretty.The colours are a lot different in person, Purple tends to look more blue in my photos.  
      
      The first picture is with my camcorder as I lost my camera charger somewhere ,between here and my mom's house. I took the second picture after my husband got me a new charger.


         


         I have used many shades of purple in this card(doesn't show in the picture)  ,the scrolls were an afterthought and the leaf shapes were made to support the scrolls. I glued all the petals and let it dry in one of the circles of my palette I use to mix water colours, to get this shape.

Nice subtle colors. I now realize what you mean when you say the colors dont show up well in the picture. For one of my cards, I used so many shades of green and the background also was a green paper with some green prints, but it hardly showed up in the pictures.

So pretty! I love the dimension you gave the flower. My camera argues with certain colors too, especially purple - it can be so frustrating.
