MC June/14 - Quill Copenhagen - Thank you

I came across a quilled flower called "Copenhagan" technique. No idea why it's called that, but I liked the look of it so decided to make a few... and one of the reasons the flowers are not traditional colors is for a few challenges I'm entering...

I top folded my white card (8.5"w x 4"h). Die cut Sizzix Tim's Trellis die to create a stencil from white cardstock. Sponged Distress "Pumice Stone" all over and then hit here and there with "Mustard Seed". Removed the stencil and cut off one strip which I inked with Versafine Black onyx and embossed with Distress "Black Onyx" embossing powder. Heat set and swiped off the misc particles. Adhered to card off set from the design.

Adhered my quilled elements. Die cut the leaves (Die Versaions "Old Oak Leaves") from black cardstock, then cut them apart and adhered to two of the flowers.

Stamped the "Thank You" (Quietfire Design) with the black.

Gorgeous card. I love the quilling...something I've not seen before. I might have to try this form of it. Also like the colors. Thank you for joining us over at Crafty Creations Challenges.

Love how you mixed the colors on your quilled flowers and affected the positive/negative look with your use of the trellis die. The leaves, the long narrow shape, the sentiment placed just so -- all beautiful!
