Dad – Typography quilled card

It was Father’s day yesterday and I wanted to make something special for my dad. He is the best father in the world. Given me things even before I have asked for, stood by me always, made me understand my mistakes patiently and most importantly made me the person that I’m today.

I decided to make a card with the word ‘Dad’ for him. I used a patterned paper for the background and then sketched the alphabets on it. Selecting colors for the card was a challenge though. I decided to go ahead with shades of blue, green and yellow to make the card look nice and fresh. 🙂 I just had a day to finish the card and hence I decided to use tight coils and quillography to make a quick but good looking card. So here are some pics of the design and the card. Dad loved the card and has already displayed it in his showcase. Btw, this is also my entry for the Indian Quilling Guild Challenge # 1 🙂 What do you think? Did you like the design? Do share your feedback 🙂   Dad - card Dad 2Dad 3

Quilled Typography

A special project for a special friend. This is quilled name board for a friend’s niece. He gave me the color scheme (purple and pink), the theme (floral) and the fonts and asked me to play around it. I made multiple sketches before freezing on this design. The final outcome was bright, clean and colorful. The frame was shipped to the US and currently rests in Zara’s room.

Was a fun project for me and a thoughtful gift from an uncle to his niece.

This is the final project:
