|quilled pink/purple card|
I know its serious lack of creativity on my part using same pattern n colors again !( Can you believe I had decided I won't make a pink/purple card for few days and try another colors ). This card looks very similar to my previous card using straw.Only difference is bg and quilling.
|royal flowers with multi strip husking|
|background created with water colors using plastic|
I have stitched butter paper layer on bg.The scalloped oval is hand cut.I have used same card stock for cutting white strips. pink ones are cut from pink chart paper.Used royal flower technique along with multi - strip husking for quilling flowers.I have used cylindrical plastic beads to make inner oval.

This is thrifty card as the total cost is well below Rs.25
Card-stock :Rs.1 (Got whole sheet for Rs.10)
patterned bg base:up-cycled packaging/filler.
Butter paper - up-cycled from packing.
Quilling strips:Rs.1 (again got big sheets and hardly used 2 strip of 3mm length wise)
beads:Rs.2 (Got full packet of disco beads for Rs.5)
The total cost comes even below Rs.5 !!
Does this makes the card so cheap??
Though the raw materials do not cost much but the efforts are very costly.Often more efforts n thinking is needed while using up-cycled items for card/project.What do you think ?
