Quilling inspired by stained glass windows
My coloured 'glass panes' for the motif on this card were created using crimped strips, loosely rolled into tight coils (if you see what I mean!!) The crimping gives an interesting patterned effect, a bit like the texture of dimpled glass. I've added the 'leading' by outlining each shape with a black strip, wound around three times to make it quite prominent. (I have always loved the effect of bright colours set off against black.)
The photo background for this quilling was created using four images - two sky scenes and two of green leaves - to suggest the beauty of the world beyond the coloured 'panes'. I'm pleased with this one ... hope you like it too!
