Final DT Post- My inspitration for DT Special Challenge

This is Dr Pratyusha from Pratvam Progs.

This will be my last post as Design team member for the IQCG. The theme which was chosen by the DT's is 'Anything goes with flower and bling' which is a month long challenge,

So I have been making quite a few monograms recently.
Thus the idea to combine various mediums including quilling for making a monogram.

So here's what I made....
I made a monogram 'S'. The base is MDF of 6inches. Mixed media techniques have been used. I really love the textures that have been produced here. The background colours are Viva Decor Pastes which give a perfect finish and blend well with each other... I have also used some gesso and testure paste for the background. Alcohol inks have been used to highlighten the edges of the quilled motifs.

Once I pasted the quilled shapes in the way I wanted. I went over them with gesso. Using the gesso helped me cover up the original colour of the strips and also let me mist them with Lindy's stamp gang sprays.
Used kaisercraft and prima stamps.... the butterfly stamp is from itsy bitsy.
The name is written on cardstock and it is misted with Lindy's spray to coordainte with the background. The corners are decorated with rhinestones.
And lastly I used gold paste and silver of the Viva decor to define the quilled shapes and the texture a bit more....

The Final Product

Close ups of the quilled shapes. Roses, Hollow flowers and tight marquise shapes. 

Hope I have inspired you enough as you have a few more days to go before we close up the entries to this final challenge after which IQCG will go on break :)

Looking forward to see your entries :)

P S- It was a great experience for me posting my work as DT inspirations.
Now finally even I will get to participate in some :) :P

Lots of love and Hugs

Indian Quilling Challenge #11 - flowers with a bling

Hello friends,

This is my last post as DT member of IQCG. It was a wonderful journey for me. I had an opportunity to showcase my work as well enjoy the wonderful quilling work done by others.

This challenge is flowers with bling - pearls, rhinestones, glitter etc. Since it is nearing Christmas I made a card for the occasion. I added a touch of glitter and rhinestones on the crisscross background pattern ( it is not clearly visible) and pearls in the flowers.

Hope you like my work. Thanks to other DT members and our admin for the support extended.

Happy quilling. :)

Challenge 11.. Flowers with a bling..

Hi friends,
Hope you all are having a good time.
This is the 11th and final post of mine as a DT member in IQC.
The journey was truly memorable.I got to learn more in this 6 months of time.With a new born and a toddler at home, i sometimes found it difficult to cope up with time schedule.Being a cooperative person, Shylaa made the task easy for me.
November month challenge is DT special - Flowers and Bling.
I made a Paper quilled Photo frame for the same.
Have a look.

And a closer look at the flowers..

Hope you all enjoyed my works.
Best wishes to all lovely crafters out there.

Happy Quilling!!
