Quilled peacock - embroidery design inspired


        
        Sometimes when I am given the choice to make what ever I think best. I take the opportunity  to make something that is on my to-do list. I found this free embroidery pattern on the internet which looked so quillable . I drew the pattern on a sheet of paper and then got the impression of the body alone on to the card.When it came to the tail part I tried to follow the pattern but soon got lost and had to arrange and rearrange the elements before sticking them down. I really love how colourful the peacock turned out. 
        The swirls are made from hand cut 200 gsm paper strips. The rest are 5mm pre cut strips . The feathers are eccentric coils made using four different coloured quilling strips joined end to end( light blue, dark blue, green and brown).



      Thanks for dropping by, Have a nice day.

Suganthi, this is simply wonderful! I love how the light blue contrasts against the darker outline, making it really seem to shine, just like the real feathers.

It looks like a black background around the head and part of the body. How did you do that? Is it black quilling papar?
