Gingersnap "Fan" Challenge

April 24th 2011
Lucky me - I received a parcel from my relative who is living in Japan for this year with some gorgeous papers and stickers to create with!!! So here's my fan just made for the 'fan'challenge at Gingersnap Creations.
I have covered some card with a sheet of the gorgeous paper I received - see the close up picture to see the detail of the paper - and then I have cut 8 "fan" pieces from the card using a template from Mirkwood Designs. I have decorated the fan with some gorgeous stickers received in the parcel along with the paper - some lovely Geishas and some little flowers and cherry blossoms. I have used a gold tassell to attach all the fan pieces. I'm really happy with how this has turned out and it really is an "Asian" piece!
