Birthday Themed ATC's --DT Subha Vivek

Hi  IQCG followers,
Good day to you all.









  I  enjoyed creating this inspiration for you.   Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) are typically samples of creative work made primarily to exchange with artists.  I decided to give it a twist by making it in a birthday theme so that it can be used as a mini card also.

It is indeed a challenge to make tiny quilled embellishments with paper widths of 3mm or less.  Look for birthday balloons, party hat, cake, gifts etc on my ATC's.

I stamped a banner  and birthday sentiment on to a cardstock measuring 2.5 x3.5 inches. Embellished them with quilled balloons, birthday cake, party hat, and gift.

Mosaic effect Quilled ATC cards

Hi friends!
Today I have done a project for Quilling Challenges Group as an inspiration post for IQGC#57.

These are Mosaic effect Quilled ATC cards.

The theme of the cards I have made to inspire you have been inspired by the little things we forget to cherish while we aim for bigger things in life.
 
 We all are so busy that we don't see the berries we used to pluck and eat so carelessly when we were children.
 
 Beautiful butterflies that fly by or sit on the flowers in our gardens are ignored while we text away furiously on our phones.
 
 Small flowers that grow by the roadside were so lovingly plucked by us and made into a small boutiques to gift our mothers!
 
 I hope these inspire you also to take a break and take a look around, enjoy the surroundings and little priceless wonders of our childhood. So what are you waiting for? Grab your thinking caps and Quilling supplies to enter the contest.

Hello friends,

I am Ishani from Quillish. Have you checked out the new Challenge

An ATC must be 2.5 x 3.5 inches or 64 x 89 mm in size. ATC are not limited to just mixed media! You can use all kinds of papers, embellishments, paints and inks to create them. Please remember we are a Quilling challenge blog and Quilling should be the focus of your project for it to qualify to win the prize.

In this challenge you will need to create 3 ATC's, a group or a set. Each one should be matching. Please remember we do have some Challenge Rules to follow so look them over to ensure your entries qualify to win this month's prize! 

 I played around the Ocean and used some encouraging sentiments for my ATCs.

I majorly made the waves with 3mm strips and added the props to give each of them a different meaning.




Stay Strong -as a boat in the rough seas. 

Don't give up like the - Migratory birds crossing oceans. 

Be a  lighthouse - lead/guide people to safety and success.

I hope I have inspired you to create ATC.

Welcoming spring-DT Subha Vivek


Hello Quillers,

A warm welcome to you as well the SPRING season.   Everybody loves the spring.  And spring reminds us of flowers, fresh grass, butterflies and rain.  This month challenge theme is WELCOMING SPRING.  

I chose to quill flowers and arrange them in a vase for my inspiration post.   I took a canvas drew an image of a vase and stencilled a damask design on it.  Using a sponge, dabbed shades of blue and purple as a background for my flowers. Rest of the canvas I coloured  black using the sponging technique.

Now for the quilling  part,  I used various techniques to quill sunflower, tulips, pansy,hydrangea, daisy etc.  Arranged all the flowers above my vase and added quilled leaves, foliage and cut out leaves.












 

Hope this gives you an idea to start with.  Anyone can participate in the challenge. Make sure you follow the rules and hashtag IQCG 56. Your project should have quilling as a major component.
