One day some lady called me and asked if I can quill a heart which can fit in her name plate which is already ready . Challenge was that the heart size was 5x5 and she wanted thickness 2mm with effect of colour which 4mm strip gives ;-) . Quilling with 2mm strip was not much problem but illumination from strips is difficult to achieve .
So I pre coloured paper with light watercolours and then worked on that surface. And yess!! I got that effect which she wanted .
Hope you all will like it and get inspired to create something new.
