Sassy Studios Indian honey

Hi

I used one of the digital images of Sassy Studios which i won in Tuesday Alchemy challenge . This is my first time using of a digital image.I used circle for sentiment, triangle for banner which is made with washi tape, square  for roses and rectangle for the image.Roses are the punched flowers. I coloured the image first with water colour pencils and found they were very light so done with sketches. You can find some spots beside the image, those are glitter , i applied and spread it along the picture and that doesn't look good in the photograph. Sentiment is a freebie from here . I liked the image so so much but i need to learn how to colour the images so beautifully like many good crafters. Hope you like it.

Hi

I made a card for Hands2Heart challenge long back but couldn't complete because of  the printout of sentiment. Bought a catridge for the printer yesterday and finally completed. Sentiment is a freebie from here. I quilled aeroplane,cloud and sun (it may not seem like that though :()

Sentiment  is a ticket which says '' vacation 1.A period  of time for pleasure, rest or relaxation, 2. A holiday ''


 Hope you like it.

This used to be a Chocolate Box

Hi all




This is a chocolate box and i changed it to a box where i can store all my quilled cards. Quilled cards occupies space and will not fit properly in an envelope. So wanted to do something from long time. As you can see in the first original box there is a transparent layer which i kept as it is so that the cards or any photo can be seen from outside. I have used only citrus colours here.

Stamped and Quilled

Hi all, 

I have a mini butterfly stamp which i used for the first time. Submitting to Paper Pretty Studio september challenge, maximize your stamp. I stamped the butterfly and coloured it. I thought that quilling needs lot of patience but today i understood that using stamps and colouring requires lot of attention , even a single mistake will be seen so clearly with stamps.  It took me some time to make this pattern as these are with rubber stamps. sentiment is a printout.




This is the other card i made, butterflies flying in  the shape of butterfly.





Hope you like it

Inspirational quote with quilled flowers

Hi all,


Made a card today for ICR challenge. Made it based on second sketch and used 5rappen coin which is the lowest currency in swiss. Wanted to use some inspirational quote, the quote that i used is related to the coin which is of small in value. Sentiment is a printout.Added Quilled Malaysian Flowers. Please tell me if it is proper thing(coin) or else you can delete my entry.





Ha finally got up early to take the pictures in Daylight. Was eager to post the pictures yestarday as i already missed participating in ICR once though making 2cards. That is when they kept the theme of making anything but easel. Now bought a new memory card after a long long time  and ready to use my D40X. My son(2) pushed the old memory card so hard into the laptop that the lock beside the card is broken and that was the reason i was using the phone to capture the pics. Yestarday took the pic during night hiding the camera from my son. I wanted to keep my post as small as possible but couldn't restrain myself from explaining all these silly things. Thanks for your comments on my card, thanks for liking my coin trail, most weird thing to do i guess, nothing wrong in trying i thought. Rose beside it is grown in my small garden  :) previous hobby before my quilling started 4months ago.
