READY STEADY STAMP#13 - FANS!

Gosh, it seems an absolute age since I did a challenge, other than on a DT.  So it was with great delight that I found that RSS were doing something completely different to what I have done before!!!!



A lovely fan shape is provided for download for this one & I really enjoyed working with it!!!  The paper is by Junkitz and I stamped a friends word stamp across the bottom of each piece.  Ribbon & lace were added before I sewed the shapes onto cream card.  The hearts are stamped with a freebie stamp.  I stamped a greeting in the top one & stuck a little pearl on each but the others do look a little bare I think...ahh well!!!  I made a tassell for the bottom & used a fancy brad to hold it all together!


Thank you so much for looking, HUGS XXX

OOOPS!!!!  What a ninky nonk as Gez would say....I left out the ladies!!!!!  Here is the revised one which I think actually looks loads better hahahaha


Thanks for bearing with me on thisone HUGS XXX

Love what you have done, very clever to change the shape with the hearts. Why didn't I think of that?

Hi, you fan is lovely but I think you have missed the first ingredient: no "ladies" on your fan . ALL ingredients must be on the project you made: all the colours, all the embellishments, the theme etc...
Thanks for playing with us, I'm glad you found us :)

Hmm - thanks for the reminder, I just realised I've stopped getting Feedblitz updates from RSS! Your fan looks fantastic and the ladies in the hearts definitely gave it a more finished look (that Isa is a tough task master, she never lets an ingredient slide!).
