This was a really really tricky card to do. My friend asked for a Totoro and a cow singing "happy birthday" inside.
When I first heard I was like, "oh no! no grey quilling strips! AND I've never watched totoro."
Google to the rescue!
and here's the little tyke. I'm having so much fun adding googly eyes to everything! First the boxing gloves and now Totoro =)
Ironically, I never used any of the pictures I got from Google Image Search. I modelled my little darling on a Totoro plushie that belongs to my cousin sister.
p.s. if you look really carefully, that's not exactly grey paper I used. *guilty grin* It's silver paper!
So the edges actually gleam in the light, though it just looks grey when it's quilled on edge. I used the same trick (substituting silver paper for grey) on this card.
