I've been experimenting with metallic-edged quilling strips again. The wings of this new butterfly are made from 3mm black strips edged with gold - the effect reminds me a little of gilded wrought iron work. To be honest, these wings evolved 'by accident' as I played around with making asymmetric huskings between my fingers and twisted the end loops (still one of my all-time favourite current techniques!) I put two of the huskings together, added a few extra marquises and swirls - and my mind just said "butterfly"!! So here's my latest butterfly on a card for the market ... who knows what new ideas tomorrow may bring?
