MC Mar/13 - Quill Daffodils - HB Friend

side view (detail of two tone paper)
It's one of my friends birthdays next week, and she's part of our quilling group, so thought I'd make her a quilled card...

The card is side folded 4.25"w x 5.5"h white cardstock.

I made the daffodils white petaled and a bright orangey yellow center which I crimped before coiling and creating an inverted grape.

The stems and leaves were colored on one side of a mint quill paper using
Distress markers in Crushed Olive. The leaves is a new technique for me. I cut out some pale green vellum in the shape of my leaves, then wrapped it and adhered the individual strips for the veins. Tedious, so probably won't do that again... Adhered everything to the card, then wrote in my words using my Fickle Font I created recently. Put in some colored pencil details.

Stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the 10 tiny tag sentiments from Quietfire Design using Versafine Black Onyx.

Yogi, this is lovely and your friend is going to enjoy it very much (perhaps that will make all that time on the leaves a little more bearable?). The quilling is so striking, I think it works wonderfully for our theme at Opus Gluei, I'm so glad you came back to play with us!
