Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I'm excited to show you a fun project I made and to share my happy news with you all. I have been asked to join the Layers of Color Design Team, and I couldn't be more thrilled to be joining with another Christian Company! I have been enjoying using these fabulous images over the past several weeks and really love them. I believe this will allow me to stretch myself in some different directions including some vintage things, which I do really love! So to kick it off, I made this paper fan using Layers of Color Art Stamps set, Merci Bouquets. I love all the little flowers in this set and it's such a versatile set!!! I know I'll be using it often!!!
I used the fan template found at Mirkwood Designs. I traced the pattern and hand cut.
I randomly stamped and embossed each blade with gold and colored with Chalks. I ran each blade through the Cuttlebug with the Textile folder and then sponged with Adirondack Latte Ink. Finally I spritzed them with Shimmerz in Baby's Breath. I added very fine pink ribbon to the back of each blade, punched the hole at the bottom and added more ribbon and gold cord to which I added some beads. The fan closes up nice and flat.
I'd like to thank Laura for giving me this opportunity to work together with the rest of the talented Layers of Color team! I already feel right at home! For more inspiration, please visit my Design Team Sisters:
