3D quilling - blue bell flowers

When I looked at the beautiful examples of 3D quilling by various people on the Net, I was tempted to try it. Actually trying it was another thing though! Quilling needs very less money for doing but truck loads of patience! One can have time but patience is a different story altogether! Needless to say, skill too. Patiently putting together paper strips, rolling them to give them the angle you want....everything takes a lot of skill and patience. I was more than happy to be doing that as Art is such a creative satisfaction to me. I tried a card for the very lady who got me started with quilling.......they say aptly, age is no bar to wisdom. She was right! I took to it and am loving doing's to her :-)

Details (as usual):
Base: 250 gsm white pearl paper (Panduro Hobby AB)
Blue: 120 gsm printing paper (A3)
Light Green: 80 gsm printing paper (leaves were made using the idea from Inna's tutorial)
Dark Green: 250 gsm chart paper (from Akademiebokhandeln)
Flower cores: Teardrop pearls on strings (from Pipoos Hobby, Gent)

PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding........:-)
