Here's one I made that features a Jacobean fellow, inspired by a crewelwork design. I seem to be on a roll with good luck cards lately.
The marbled background was the cover of a museum brochure originally - I wish I had an unlimited supply; love it! After doing a run of marriage certificates and wedding invitations in subtle colors, I enjoyed using such vivid shades of quilling paper.
Same goes for this little parrot. Whimsical and bright, I made him as part of a collection of baby animals to go on a frame for one of our nephews. Now that I'm taking such a close look, I see he kind of looks like he's tip-toeing along the branch, ha!
Wendy Verity of Australia made this adorable abstract owl... sorry the pic is a bit overexposed, but we can make out the clever design just fine. She rolled silver-edged paper with green and purple to give his eyes such a nice shine, and he looks very handsome against the Cuttlebug embossed background.
If you're new here and would like to see a recap of some other birds I've quilled, visit Donaville Herrick's beautiful new site, Dearest Nature, where she kindly featured several of my feathered friends earlier this week.
If you've quilled a bird (or even a flock!) you'd like to share with everyone, I hope you'll post a link in the comments section.
