I created this card for my friend's birthday. She has 3 poodles so it just seemed to appropriate. I am posting this card in response to the DT call for Our Creative Corner. I would really love to be selected for this design team. I think that quilling has been a somewhat neglected technique when it comes to cardmaking. I think that quilling can really enhance a card, even it is only a little flower and I would love to have the opportunity to show quilling to more people.
I need to explain why this is my style. Anyone who knows me knows I love to quill. But if you look at my style of card making, it has really evolved over the last couple of years. I used to do primarily quilling. I just quilled something, maybe added some background paper and stuck it on the card. But then I started using sketches and how I thought about my cards changed. Now, I am much more likely to use a variety of techniques in a card. And this is the case with this card. I used quilling but I also used a sketch for the background. The dog bones on the left are paper pieced and I used foam letters to write the "woof". Sometimes I do like to go back to pure quilling, but I think this card really epitomizes my current style. In addition, I used bright colours which I love to do. Finally, the theme is an animal, which is probably my preferred choice of image. I hope you like it.
