The theme for Gingersnaps for April is the Far East, and this week we are featuring Fans. The other week Deb and I went to a huge car boot sale and I bought these fan earrings for 20p with the challenge in mind. I liked the metal tassel as I thought it was quite 'Tim Holtz'.
I cut the Japanese calligraphy paper with the Tim Baroque die, and coloured the Geisha (Crafty Individuals) with Pro Markers in colours to match the background paper. I then added some shrink plastic flowers and a butterfly, and an I Ching coin made with friendly plastic in an art mould. I then cut a metal embellishment in half and used it top and bottom, added some hand dyed ribbon, and then added the earring at the bottom, to make a hanging.
