ID: MC June/13 - Quill Trillium - Faeries card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: June 21, 2013

I've been using my Martha Stewart Punches BIG GRIN. This is an oldie but goodie one.

I was raised in Montreal, and our woods are filled with white trillium and have always loved them. I think this is the first time I have ever used them in my paper crafting though. Anyway at my latest quilling session, I was playing with this beautiful off white paper and edging it with a gold Krylon pen and then making various combinations. I really liked the big ones I made that just had a subtle gold edging around the whole petal as a detail. I had one where every part of the petal was edged in the gold - too much... then I did that smaller one the edged each segment of the petals and I liked it, but it was still a bit much and that's how the larger ones evolved...

I'm also using a  quote stamp from Quietfire Design


I side folded my white card and heavily sponged Distress Mustard See around the edges.

Punched out my frame (Martha Stewart "Combo Double Loops") from white cardstock and adhered to my card

Used the "Woodgrain" (Sizzix) embossing folder on another piece of white cardstock which I had first applied some Antique Linen direct to paper. When embossed, sponged Walnut Ink all over the high points. Trimmed it down and adhered to border piece.

Adhered my quilled elements and made some paper coils as stems.

Stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black onyx and clear embossed. Hand cut around and used two corner rounders on the edges. adhered with 3D adhesive squares.

Wrote my word "Trillium" with a pointed pen and Sumi ink, trimmed close and used the punch on one end, adhered with the 3D tape.

I had a baby dragonfly punched out on my table, so added that.
