ICQG#15----Anything goes with ROSES-----DT post

Hello everyone!!

This is Jasleen here today with my inspiration post for this month's Indian Quilling Challenge#15, where the theme is to create anything with quilled roses.  You can create just about anything- a card, layout, altered item, stand-alone quilling project, 3d quilled creation, tags, bookmarks,etc. but make sure you have a quilled rose somewhere in your creation.

Here's what I've come up with:-

Closer view of quilled roses

Tent card-- frontal view

It's a tent card with a pot of roses hanging in the middle. The pot and the roses are quilled using 5 mm  width quilling strips of various colours.

The butterflies on the front panel of the card were stamped and heat embossed using white EP . The front panel was sponged with different colours of memento inks and was stuck to the card base. A piece of white burlap was stuck on the inside, serving as a background to the quilling and the window.
Side view

 I came across such tent cards on the quilling genius Inna Dorman's blog and instantly fell in love with the concept.  Such a cute and unique way to greet, isn't it?

Here's the link to Inna's post about tent card>>>

Here's a tutorial about quilling roses>>

Here's a tutorial that I followed to make this card>>

I hope you liked this as much as I did. Do give it a try.  You'll be very happy with the outcome. :)

That's all from my side. Look forward to seeing what you all come up with. :)

Happy Quilling !! :)
