Regular followers of Quilliance will know that I just love to amuse myself by pushing the boundaries of conventional quilling techniques!!!
Today, I decided to create a quilled holly leaf for a Christmas card - but instead of making it with the usual pinched green coil, I started with an open shape as an outline that could then be filled in with other shapes.
As you can see, I'm on a bit of a crimping kick at the moment - I think that shapes made out of crimped strips definitely have an extra bit of character when you want to do something different.
So ... not a conventional Christmas card by any means, but hopefully an eye-catching one!
