I'm quilling again ... with flowers and lace!
As followers of Quilliance will know, I've been using photographic backgrounds for my quilling for quite a while, but now that I'm getting more into digital art I've also started to see great potential for 'digi-scrapbooking elements' like this lovely lace border by Karen Stimson which can be downloaded as a 'freebie' by readers of Papers and Pixels magazine (December edition). It's actually part of a set of gorgeous lace designs.
Using my Mac Pages software, I simply pulled the lace image on top of a plain blue background for this card, and I felt it would make the perfect frame for an elegant quilled motif. So I've created this lady in a flowing dress carrying a huge bouquet of flowers. I think the design has a delicate, summery feel - just what I need on a drab winter's day!
