DT work - challenge no 33 - Your favourite quilling technique

Hello Everyone,
I am DT Aparna Balakrishnan of shequills and today i am here to present you my DT post on IQC challenge #33 - Your favourite quilling technique.

Though I have many favourite quilling techniques which I love to do, my all time and most fav techniques are Beehive quilling and tight coil quilling.

So here is my DT work which has a beehive quilled butterfly and some tight coiled flowers and leaves surrounding the colourful beehived creature.

Here is the challenge image and the challenge link for your view

Also please find the closer view of my work

I started the project with a printed copy of the butterfly I chose, and quilled the outline of it with black 5mm strips. The beehives are then added and filled throughout, in colours of blue , pink , green , red and orange. I used the primary shape/technique of quilling (tight coil rolling) to make flowers in few colours and the leaves were quilled simultaneously placing the flowers over them.
Finally the work was completed with branches here and there using crimping and spiral techniques.

Hope you all like my DT work for this month's challenge. Please do participate with your wonderful quilled projects made with your fav quilling techniques and win some exciting stuffs from our beloved sponsors.

Cheers , 
Aparna Balakrishnan(DT)
