Artist Trading Card Daily – 74

March 15, 2015 — 9 Comments

Well, it’s number 74 in the Artist Trading Card 365 challenge and still going!

I have another little quilled creation for you this time.

This was more of an experiment in making an elegant floral spray featuring some bell shaped flowers.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 74.2

I’m quite proud of the result too!

One of the simplest to make if I’m totally honest.

I started by making the background with some layers of black and white cardstock topped with a blue with white spotted patterned paper.

I then glued on some green paper strips to resemble long twisted leaves.

The floral bell shapes each started out as a tight coil which I then pushed onto the top of the domed end of a pen.

The bells were then glued into groups of three (except one) and then glued onto the central green stem with Pinflair glue gel (because of the dimension involved).

I then titivated the design with some gems in the floral bells and on the corners of the ATC.

And there we have ATC number 74 only 294 to go!!!

I’ll be back with another mini make soon – how am I doing? Are you enjoying this series?

    Hi John

    That is such a clever technique! Wow!

    I agree with Jan, they remind me of lily of the valley too.

    I so look forward to your mini creations, you have such good ideas.

    Hugs,

    I thought they were lily of the valley too. The card is a real beauty! You might have found it simple to make but how on earth do you keep coming up with these wonderful ideas let alone the expertise to carry them out? This is another technique I am itching to try. Thanks again, John X
