Quilled flowers

Since it is the Play Date Café Challenge is turning #100 and since the inspiration panel was so pretty, I made a second card for the challenge. Here’s the inspiration panel again:

The card is also for the Hero Arts September challenge (fall theme). I was inspired to pull out my quilling paper and make some fringed flowers. Here's my card:

I used 3 mm paper for the flower centers, 6 mm paper for the inner fringed paper and 10 mm paper for the outer fringed paper. A bulldog clip was used to hold the paper while fringing it, this makes it easier to do all those cuts with a scissor. Three strips were glued together and rolled using a needle tool. I use a needle tool when I quill since that makes the centre neat. I only start to roll on the tool, and then roll the rest using only my fingers. Here's a close-up:

The flourish stamp was inked with Peeled Paint, misted with Perfect Pearls and water and stamped on watercolour paper. The script is third generation stamping using Wild Honey. I wiped some of the text off before stamping.

Thanks for looking!!
