Quilled Lord Ganesha

During the time I was away from blogging we moved so, before leaving our old place I presented this quilled piece of "Ganesha" to my landlord's family.

The entire project was quilled using 1/8th inch strips of paper.

I first enlarged the picture to the canvas size I want to quill on, and made few subtle changes before tracing it. I then went on to attach the paper strips on the outline.

For the ornaments on the ear, I made a tight roll using ivory colored strips of paper and then painted it gold.

A black colored marquise with a brown colored loose coil at its center forms the eye of "Ganesha".

The interior part of the picture was quilled using beehive technique by Susan.

Congratulations Card

 I'm playing along with the CAS(E) this Sketch #89 challenge and here is my take on the sketch.

The card base is a textured navy colored cardstock that is cut narrow than the usual standard. The central panel is a white cardstock layered on a gold.

I quilled the rings using a 1/16th inch width gold strips of paper.

I stamped the word "congratulations" on a horizontally cut gold cardstock placed above the central panel to  in a manner similar to the given sketch.

I glued few rhinestones on the central panel for that little touch of bling.

Lastly, I stamped the flower on a white cardstock, then cut and placed it on the horizontal cardstock.

Happy Birthday Pumpkin!

I've been absent from blogging for a long time now so to get back into the swing of things I have chosen to take part in this challenge on "Lulupu".
I picked out the stamps, ribbons and punches grid to make this card.

The card measures 5.5 * 4.25 and the layered pearl cardstock a 5.25 * 4.0.

The pumpkin was crafted by overlapping a set of five circles that were punched out using a circle punch while the stem and vine are quilled.

I then stamped the words "happy birthday" and added the enamel dots to give an edge.

Finally, added a grey colored polka dot ribbon.
