This one was for a special order, all done with 1/16" narrow strips.

Pearl peach roses, and a few leaves and scrolls, were just enough elegance for this card. The squares are mounted with foam dots. The gold metallic scatter fringed flowers are great for a masculine card.
For this one, I watercolored the leaf peel-offs, then I quilled a leaf similar to the peal off design. The paper is gold edged, but hard to see in the picture. The pink one is a card that i cut using a die cut machine at a local scrapbook store. I love this diecut, but sadly the store is closing. I've been going there and cutting as many as I can for a future supply :)

So, as I mentioned I thought I would add pics of my quilled musical instruments. I have made a grand piano, 3 guitars, and a violin/fiddle... These were all custom orders.... and all were happy with the results!
The piano took sooo long to complete, but when it was finished, I almost wished that I could have kept it. I did it all in pearl papers, and there are 88 fringed keys, along with actual printed music sheets (the wonders of computers!) . The violin, was my first stringed instruments, so I went through some challenges with it, but was really happy with the results. Stringing it with metallic thread took a long time!
Well, I'd better get back to fixing my pc. Hopefully I'll be back soon with some more pics to share. I am going to add some newer ones, as well as some older pieces.... Please check back often, and you're welcome to leave comments too!
