First the Fan was brayered with Kaleidacolour Desert Heat rainbow inkpad.
The new Flourish stamp was stamped wth black ink and embossed with matt clear powder. The large Fan Lady, tree arch sides and flowers were stamped and embossed with the same ink and powder.
The flower was then stamped over the black flowers with Versamark ink and embossed with Enchanted Gold powder. The lady's robe was coloured using a Versamark pen and the gold powder. Versamark ink was then stippled round the outside of the fan and embossed with the same powder.
The handle was painted black, stippled lightly with Versamark and heated. Then Versamark ink all over the handle and a couple of layers of clear embossing powder to give an enamelled look.


This is the Oriental Fan Decor Plate ( measures 18 cm x 26 cm) which has been decorated with stamp designs from the 'Fabric' collection of images.
Fan painted pale green, stamped with part of the Lace Texture Mat and then designs from Fabric Collage and Stitched Flowers Die Sheets have been embossed over it.
The flower was made by embossing paper flowers several times with clear powder ( can also use Melt Pot, see this clever lady HERE ) (mind your fingers!!)


Yet another wall art (or craft) creation using the new Decor Plates.
This time Opalite inks on a black background.Stippling on the handle and character folowwed by embossing with several layers of clear powder to produce the lacquered effect.


Yet another Decor Plate looks brown on the picture but it's actaully Black Plum (Decoart).
The Lace Texture Mat gives a background, Eyelet Edger and punched flowers around the edge and the Floral Rosette stamp design for the centre. The flower petals were stamped with white ink on the rough side of acetate, folded and glued and fixed in the centre of the fan.

This is my entry for this weeks CD Sunday Challenge..
an Anniversary Plaque / Decor Plate to hang on a wall

The fan uses an Oriental Fan Decor Plate, painted with ivory acrylic paint, decorated by stamping and embossing with gold tinsel powder, a heart 'Edger' stamp (CaroLines) around the outer edge, with the message also embossed. The fan handle was inked with Brilliance Galaxy Gold and embossed with several layers of clear powder. While the embossing was still hot, the handles was pressed on to CaroLines Tiles 2 Texture Mat.
The Fan design is from Hinny Bop's Fantastic CD, printed on Champagne Conqueror paper (from Staples), edged with border Peel-Offs, more flowers decoupaged with Glossy Accents applied for dewdrops.
The fan was decorated further with gemstones and a bow printed from the Fantastic CD.
