Embossed Fan

I loved doing this project, its my first attempt too. Using cardstock shimmer gold from crafters companion l die-cut and embossed 6 fans bought from there too fromm Mariannes collection of dies, which l softly distressed all the embossed details in a pearly buff colour ink. Then using the Moreheads children cd collection, which again is from crafters companion, which l really recommend getting its so cute. I printed off the ephianys and slightly sprayed them with spray & shine that's from there, glossed them and then die-cut into the shapes required to fit onto the the panels of the fan. then printed off a single image from the cd and again glossed. Then put together with added embellishments eg pearls, crystal flowers and tassel with a co-ordinating Brad, which some of them can be bought from crafters companion too and done.
This is done to join in their challenge for September, & in hope to be picked out to be a guest there too, l would be a happy bunny.
Many thanks for popping over xxx Theresa
