Some Quilling Some Stamping

Last week I ordered a couple of stamps to try some image stamping other than the sentiment ones. While I was making attempts at it, I found this interesting challenge on "Lulupu" and gave it a try. Here's the outcome.

Both the cards are a standard size of 4.25 * 5.5

I have used Avery Elle's "Modern Leaves" clear stamp set.

I started out by stamping the entire front of the card with a leaf stamp in two different colors.

I then cut strips of 4.25 inch length with variable widths, one such that it would fit the sentiment.

I attached the strips suitably and finished the card with pearl embellishments.

I made the second card for a friend's house warming ceremony. I stuck to conventional design for this card and adjoined the stamped leaves with twine so they would resemble a "thoranam" pattern.

I traced out a picture of Ganesha from one of the wedding cards I had at home.

I then quilled the entire picture using 1/16th inch strips of paper except the eye which is an adhesive rhinestone.

Finally, glued rhinestones on top of the leaves.

Entering this card to Lulupu's Challenge #13 Lady Stamp-A-Lot.
