Quilled Earring & Card

Quilled Earring.....Definitely not best yet being first attempt, bit close to heart....

After 17 years, i happened to meet my family friend very recently who is an ardent lover of arts and crafts. After being attended the first Emirates Quilling Exhibition here in UAE to see my artworks last year, she waited for my arrival here to UAE...From the day, i met her she started asking me for quilled earrings...Atlast, i gained all my hope to do my first attempt of quilled earring. Hope she likes it!

I just wished to do a card and add this quilled element on it. As usual, simple attempt using my new quilling mold to make dome with 1.5 mm metallic quilling strips, added a bow and Voila....Card is ready!!

I have used PPA (Perfect Paper Adhesive, gloss) to make it water resistant and sturdy ie., as sealant and adhesive. This product is from Mrs. Honey Moser, Honey's Quilling store, Malaysia. I am much convinced by her excellent explanation about this adhesive and so tried now. Its such a quick adhesive, dries super fast, first coating just soaks in and acts as sealant and the second coat makes as topcoat. Two types are available, such as PPA gloss and PPA matte. Mine is PPA gloss and the glossiness is not that clear in picture actually.

Hope you all like it!!!
