About the flowers: I have been trying to teach myself some quilling basics. So far, these fringed flowers are my favorite thing. I love the way they look and I think I have mastered the technique. This is the first time that I have tried making them with more than one color and I think the are he perfect complement to go with this stamp set and the paper. They aren't terrible difficult to make, but they are a little time consuming. You have to take the strip of paper and make all these little cuts into it before rolling it. If your aren't careful, it is easy to cut straight through the strip or to rip it when it is being rolled. I won't admit to how many were ripped before I came up with these seven flowers! Someone left my a comment on the other flowers I made and asked if I was fringing them by hand or using a machine. There's a machine that does this?
I am thinking of getting an air brush system. Does anyone have one to go with their Copics? Any hints or information that would help me make a decision? I can't believe I am even asking that. I remember when Angela got her Prisma markers, I said, "Oh. I would never pay that much for markers". Then she let me try them. The first thing I colored was Riley with the little chicks. I was in love with both before I was half way done with the image. Then I got the Prisma markers too, because they were cheaper. Then I needed some skin colors and that led to getting Copics. Now I am looking at air brush systems!
