Quilling Eccentric Coils

The third week of my Quilling class at My Creative Classroom has taught us how to make eccentric coils.  Here is my first class project............


An eccentric coil means you pin the inner coil against one side of the circle.  See how the coils spiral out?  Pretty cool.  I also learned to make hand looped leaves as well as husking; using a cork board, pins and a pattern.  This is a fabulous class and if you are at all interested in Quilling, you should check it out.


My card base was created using my Cheery Lynn Designs Scalloped Oval Stackers die.  Then I cut an oval panel using the coordinating Silver Oval Stackers die which I embossed with Cheery Lynn Designs XL Black Eyed Susans embossing plate.  The last step was to add the dragonfly, also from Cheery Lynn.  This will fit a 5 x 7 envelope..
