I learned to quill in October 2001, and still love it...maybe even more now... There is no limit to what one can create with quilling! It goes so well with many other techniques too... I have won several awards for my quilling and cards. I sell my quilling at arts and craft sales, & by word of mouth. I also do some custom/personalized orders. I do quilling demos, and teach both beginner and advanced techniques classes.
In 2013, I became accredited with the North American Quilling Guild.
I made this card last weekend for a friend of mines birthday. It took me longer to make, as I didn't use any of my already made stock of flowers and leaves. Again, I used the Cuttlebug 'Happy Birthday' Folder. The quilling is all done with 1/16" narrow strips from Jane Jenkins line of papers. I find I am using more narrow strips to quill with lately, and am finally getting accustomed to using them. For both the sheer ribbon and the little satin ribbon, I used a Bic 'Mark it' permanent marker in color Tropical Teal. These markers are wonderful!!! You can use them to color peel-offs, and ribbon, and they are permanent, and dry fast, because they are an alcohol base. They come in many colors. The Sharpie permanent markers also apparently work the same way, but I have not tried them yet. I especially like coloring ribbons and peal offs as the ink doesn't come off. They work well for coloring over stamped images as well. I buy mostly white sheer and satin ribbons so I can custom color them to match my cards.
