Here’s the birthday card I’ve made for my friend Nicky … inspired by today’s post on The Quilling Guild members’ blog, and captured on camera inside my new photographic light box! I would never previously have attempted to photograph work on a dark winter’s night – but I’m pleased to say it’s turned out OK, thanks to some powerful lamps. No shadows, either! I thought about lightening the image even further using Photoshop, but didn’t want to ‘bleach’ the colours. It’s all still a learning curve for me.
I printed the lettering for the card via word processing software, and then set about decorating the initial letter with quilling, using a variety of different techniques. I could easily have gone on and on adding decoration, but I decided that sometimes ‘less is more’. Hopefully this was a good place to stop.
