Yes, you can do it. :-)
Hi everyone, it has been a few weeks but finally I have time to share a creation with you. I think this week I will be relying on the saying 'Better late than never'. This card is for the newest Unstampabelles Challenge #21 which is all about quilling. This challenge has taken almost everyone out of their little squares to try something new. And if it is not new to them it is something they enjoyed revisiting as they have not done it in years. I have not done much quilling but did do a couple of cards a couple of years ago. Thought I would have some on my blog but must have been before I discovered blogland. However, this is a quilled card my Mum made for me a couple of years ago.
On to my card above. The weekend before last we were in Brisbane visiting our son for his 19th birthday. A wonderful time was had although it was a little funny as it poured rain all weekend. Funny that we had to fly all the way to Brisbane to experience our normal wet season which has eluded us this year. I had not even made a start on my DT card for Unstampabelles at this stage. My friend had suggested I visit this amazing store while we were in Brisbane - Photo Continental It truly was terrific.....so much crafting stock under the one roof was just amazing. Hubby and son were happy too as on the other side it is all about cameras, printing and framing. Of course, I only had time for a very quick look and spied this quilling kit from Quilled Creations called Love Birds. So bought it and that night by hand as I had no special quilling tool, needle, or toothpick began rolling the lengths of papers into the shapes required. I also didn't have any glue so had to put all the little shapes back in the bag for the journey home. We hit the ground running and had a busy week so I didn't get to put this card together until this weekend. I really liked how JanR (DT member Unstampabelles) had embossed the background of her card then adding the quilling. So I did that with my card then added the quilled pieces and punched flowers.
I hope that you will take the time to visit Unstampabelles and see all the other wonderful creations by the Design Team and remember this is the first time that they have tried this technique. So you can too.
