MC Apr/15 - Quill Lotus - Feathers - Sing - HB


http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2015/MCApr15_QuillWaterLily_Hello_ASmile_HB.htmlA couple weeks ago I made a card using this quilled flower design but as a water lily and the petal shapes were round, this time I shaped the petals to a more pointy shape. This time I also cut my own quill strips (1/16"w) and painted them with daubers. So much for thinking I wasn't going to make that flower again... Then on my DT group we were discussing the brands of flowers and things we use. If you ever read my descriptions, you know I make everything myself... BUT I do have drawers and drawers and containers filled with all kinds of ready made things - Sigh!!, so I decided to raid those drawers BIG GRIN. took some feathers and skeleton leaves and paper leaves to embellish this card. I had a friend here in Calgary that sold lots of Thai papers and flowers and things, but she stopped selling them several years back. And I had really stocked up...

This is just gorgeous, Yogi! You compiled so many pretty things in the making of this, all so beautifully coordinated. I have quite a few of those kinds of accent pieces which I never get around to using, too. And oh, my, how I love the bird inside!
