The Leopard of Sri Lanka in paper quilling (Quilled)

Many of my friends have qilled the tiger. Some have done the full tiger and some have done the face only. My ambition was to quill a lion but my friend Paula (ON FB) had done two very beautiful quillings of the tiger's face. This inspired me to do a leopard. I usually try not to quill what someone has already done. So this seems to be a good idea. It wasn't an easy task. The picture is only 8"x12". The quilled pieces are extremely small. So many bits to be quilled but I think it was worth all my trouble. I would not quill for a while as Christmas is round the corner and it means extra work and preparations but not for long. Will be back with a Christmas creation. Have fun and add a comment if you have time :)
