ID: MC June/15 - Triangle Quill Tangle - The Only True Gift - HB card
size: 7" x 5"h

Created: June 11, 2015

At my last quilling session I was a little stumped as to what to work on... Then I started doodling the "Narwal" tangle I saw on "A Little Lime" blog and the next thing I new, I was quilling the design... The design is basically a bunch of "S'es". The one of the challenges called for a different type of fold and this is what I came up with...

I'm using a quote & sentiment stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design

("The Only True Gift..." );  ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set)


I doodled the tangle onto some white cardstock, then went over it with a .05 Copic marker. Added pencil shading and blending with a paper stump. Trimmed it down, sponged a bit of Distress around the edges ("Wild Honey" then some "Spun Sugar") Hit the edges with the flat of my pad with the wild honey.

The quilled piece is done with 1/16" (narrow) quill paper and adhered to a piece of paper to hold it together easily, then on to the card.

I calligraphed the word "Tangle" using a Blackletter style and 6.0 Parallel pen, scanned it and then imported it and cut with my electronic cutter. Colored it with a black Bic marker while on the mat, removed from mat and applied Versamark all over then clear embossed twice. Adhered to card. Wrote the words "it up..."

Folded my wheat toned textured cardstock at an angle (not 45) so that I came up with a 7"w x 5"h triangle... Adhered my rectangle piece, then added the rhinestone flourishes and the large clear faceted jewels.


On the inside stamped the quote and birthday sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Stamped the edge design (Designs By Ryn "Sea Creatures #2 sheet) using Distress mini pads ("Broken China" & "Picked Raspberry"). misting with water prior stamping.
