Gingersnaps Orient Theme Fan Feature

Firstly Thank you Gingersnapper's for selecting me as a Ginger Gem again, completely un-expected and a great thrill.

This Watercolour paper board is my entry to the Gingersnap's Random Redhead Challenge - Fans.  The April theme has been the Orient and Fans are very much an oriental feature.

The covered board has been blended with DI and then stamped with Momento ink using Creative Expression blossom.   The image coloured with Pro Markers.   A nestie scallop circle very slightly smaller than the Creative Expression stamp  which has been stamped and clear embossed.  Again Pro Markers used to colour it.    The Vellum fan is a Personal Impression stamp, stamped in white onto the vellum scored with a ball end embossing tool and the creases folded for dimension.

The Nestie and fan have been attached with Collall 3D silicon glue, my new favourite.
