Mixed media with Quilling

Here's my entry for Indian Quilling Challenge Group IQCG#38

I have used a white cardstock and the background is coloured using corrugated board .The colours used were green, yellow , blue and pink. The circles were printed(stenciled) using acrylic paints and different bottle caps .I have used itsy bitsy chipboard cuts which were dabbed with pink acrylic paint and finally sponged with gold powder. Inside the chipboard cut , I have used tissue paper and glued it with modpodge and later coloured it with the back ground colour to give it a depth ...
I have also used the real twigs that were coloured using brown paint and dabbed with gold powder for the glittery effect .Quilled flowers and birds are stuck to the card. I have used pearl and antique gold bead embellishments. I wanted a golden finish and hence sprinkled the golden powder here and there. I loved making them and thankyou Shylashree for the amazing contest.
