Quilling on dark cardstock

Post by Jocelyneliza on 2011-10-11, 03:38

Found this site with nothing out of the ordinary except Dale, the quiller, has used black cardstock and I think it looks great.

Dale's quilling

I do not know about you but black card has not been my first, second or even third choice for a card but I may try it after seeing these results.

Dale has said that she is new to quilling but has mastered and is using eccentric coils in her work and I like her design placement and colour choice.

Hi Jocelyn Yes that is beautiful Quilling. Black is not always a colour of sadness, her work has proven it. Thank you for sharing this work of art

I have always known that colours are enhanced by black because we were advised to get a black wedding album for our coloured photos.
Trouble is I do not think customers are attracted to black cards. The neon colours look good on black too

I love black! I've always wanted to do embroidery on black...but could never figure out how to get my design onto it. And now that you've showed me this...gorgeous work...I want to do some quilling on black. I think I did something but heck if I can remember Embarassed

If I had a big wedding I would have loved to have worn a black wedding dress with red roses as a bouquet...as it was I wore a t- shirt & jeans Laughing Real formal! Razz

Sheree all you had to do is to use white material chalk that would have given you an outline on black material. You go one better than me, I wore knickerbogs pants, with high black boots,with a bello top.To top it all our best man came with us on our honymoon in Heidelberg.

Sheree, to transfer a design onto black fabric you could use white dressmakers carbon paper or there is a product in Australia called Saral Transfer Paper which is available in four colours including white and contains no wax or grease and also washes out of fabrics. I would imagine this product would be available in many other countries. Good luck.

Sheree the Saral Transfer Paper would be O.K. for paper as you can rub out the lines but I need to say this information is from research only and I have not used the product. There is a pen available where the lines disappear after 3 or 4 days and I have used this product on fabric. Will dig mine out and see how it goes on paper.

O.K. Sheree I can see how this would be confusing. We normally say the east coast of Australia borders the Pacific Ocean but, to be more specifc (as per your question), the Coral Sea covers the east coast of Australia from the tip of Queensland to the mid north coast of New South Wales (NSW) in line with Coffs Harbour, one of our major coastal towns about midpoint on the eastern coastline of Aus. The Tasman Sea (nicknamed The Ditch) runs from this point to the tip of Tasmania and covers the area between Australia and New Zealand (NZ) (crossing The Ditch means going or coming from NZ).

Bass Strait is the water between the Island state of Tasmania to the Australian mainland at the southern end of the State of Victoria.

Both these Seas plus Bass Strait are part of the Pacific Ocean. Just to complete the Australian coastline the south and west coastlines are bordered by the Indian Ocean.

Thank you for asking this question because, even though we know these seas are there, I did not really know the start and finish points until I looked it up.

Not confusing at all! I actually understood all that! Thank you!

If not for questions...how would we learn new things!?

Hugs!

PS Bass Strait can be crossed by ferry or air and we usually fly to NZ across the Ditch LOL
