WIRE COILS ON CARDS



This is my 1st try at using some wire shapes I made myself using a round nose plier and a flat nose one. I sew them to the card using silver thread. I also used some beads for the butterfly body and quilled wings. I also used funky scissors for the borders and foam for a raised effect. Finally added pink ribbon for the background and K& Co base card.

Esta es mi 1er intento al usar unos espirales de alambre que yo misma hice usando las tenazas de puntas redondas y planas. Luego las cosi usando hilo plateado. Tambien use unas moztacillas para el cuerpo de la mariposa e hice las alas de filigrana. Tambien use tijeras de bordes ondeados y foamis para darle un efecto 3D. Funalmente le agrege cinta rosada para el fondo y una tarjeta de K&Co como base.
