The direction of the small strips create the illusion of the contours along with dark and light colors which give the depth.
I am thrilled with the fact that Thumper's bold innocence has come out well through the twinkle in his eyes.
There is not much I can give by way of instructions as it only involves pasting the strips. You can refer to my tips here in which I have tried to say it all. Since that tutorial, I have stopped pasting on the print out directly since the pencil marks can show through. I transfer the image by keeping the backing under the print out and tracing with a thin embossing stylus. I use the embossed side to see the image clearly. If the lines are seen I cover it up by gluing strips. Nature is never perfect. In fact the diversity is achieved through slight imperfections , hence, I don't try to get my images or flowers perfectly symmetrical as I love to imitate nature. Believe you me, I am no great artist!! I discovered that I had even a semblance of artistry only after I started quilling less than a year back. So, those of you who think it is tough, just jump in and try it. You will be surprised at what you discover!!
Come tell me what you think. I would love to have your feedback.
