yesterday's post, I've had quilling and stained glass windows on my mind! I woke up this morning with the idea of a little 'stained glass effect' dove of peace in my head, and so I've made this card using the same photo background as the previous one:
I was quite pleased with the little 'olive branch' appearing next to the rainbow (echoes of Noah and the Great Flood here!), but I felt that the black outline was perhaps just a bit too heavy for this delicate little dove.
So I made another bird without an outline, and this one has gone on to a plain blue window-shaped background - altogether much more of a soft, peace-filled design for Christmas time. I think this is definitely one of those cases where 'less is more' in terms of simplicity. And it reminds me that I don't have to use a photo background every time. Sometimes the quilling just speaks for itself.
