Quilling for two ... two years on!!
But it did finally get sold last week, so today I settled down to make a replacement - pictured here.
Back in early 2008, I made three sets of 'twins' cards: twin girls, twin boys and 'one of each'. Looking back at them now, it's interesting to see how much my quilled card designs have (hopefully!!) improved over the years.
In those early days, I was struggling with hand-lettering, stencil cut-outs and quilling which was basic to say the very least!
Since then, I've discovered the magic of creating printed card backgrounds for my quilling using my Apple iMac computer - a technique which has led me on to producing photographic designs and so much more ... and I've never really looked back, until now.
Still, here's the original cut-out card that I've just sold (see below), and although I feel very critical of it today, the lady who bought it was full of admiration - so there you go!!
