            Oriental Fan Thank You Card:

Products I used:
Linnie Blooms Canvas Tree
Stampendous Products

1. Stamp Image: Stamp the fan onto the tree using Ranger Archival black ink.  Stamp the cherry blossom flowers onto the center of the fan.  Cut off the trunk of the tree and stamp some additional cherry blossoms onto the canvas.

2. Paint & Glitter: Using a water brush, paint the cherry blossoms with watercolor paints. Add glue to a smattering of spots and sprinkle Stampendous copper glitter over the image.  Shake off the excess glitter and return it to the bottle.

3. Background:  Tear the edge of a strip of patterned paper and apply pink chalk to the torn edge.  Attach the patterned paper to the card base. Add glue to the centers of the flowers and add Stampendous glitter sand.  Shake off the excess glitter sand and return it to the bottle.

4. Embellish Fan: Fold the fan in a concertina style pressing firmly with your fingers to crease the canvas. Use some basting stitches to secure the folds at the base.  Embellish the handle of the fan with a charm and strips of tulle. Glue gems to the center of the blossoms and adhere the fan to the card.

5. Embellishments & Sentiment: Attach mini flowers, pearls, & a dragon fly accent to the background.  Stamp a sentiment in the lower right corner of the card. Cut out the canvas blossoms you stamped on the tree trunk canvas and adhere them near the sentiment.
