A new Easter card with sheep and some quilling
Sheep and lambs always remind me of Spring, and I decided to use some bright, warm, sunshiny background colours to make this design into an Easter card.
First I quilled the daffodils (to complement the smaller picture), and then I added a little border motif in three colours to go under the flock of sheep.
The idea for this motif pattern actually came from studying the strap of my wrist watch. Take a closer look, and you'll see a repeating pattern comprising marquise, eye and curved triangle shapes. I wanted to see if this would translate into quilling, and I think it's worked OK. Maybe there's potential here for a longer border piece?
