A touch Oriental



The first Monday of the month and time for a new challenge at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges where our November theme has been chosen by yours truly and it's 'Anything but a card'. As always there is a great prize from FlonzCraft and the opportunity to choose some lovely stamps.


When I chose the theme I wasn't sure what I would make but the idea came when I was at a show recently and saw some chipboard fans on the Tando stand. The pack contains two in different different sized, this is the smaller about 7" x 5". Each come as two parts and the top ones has push out sections so you can layer the fan to given dimension. I masked the bottom part and painted alternate sections with brown and aqua Fresco acrylic paint and then stamped with two different Flonz stamps, Butterfly branch and Apple blossom using detail gold embossing on the aqua and Judikins aquamarine sparkle on the brown.

The top section was painted with Adirondack gold dabber and 'fluffed' up to give a dappled affect and nice metallic sheen. Finally I threaded some beads and made a tassel to thread through the hole - there is not a hole in the template but my Japanese screw punch went through a treat.

I do hope you will join in our challenge this month.
