GC99 Gingersnap Creations - Fans

The new Random Redhead Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations is "Fans".

I decided to use my favourite die of the moment - Tim Holtz' mannequin.  I used the die to make both the mannequin and the cheongsam but trimmed them down to a more slender oriental frame!

The fans are an inkadinkado stamp which I coloured with promarkers and sakura pens and mounted onto a 'panel'.



Maybe a bit 'clean & simple' for this challenge, what do you think!?

Happy Crafting

I think it's perfect, if there is anything that is clean and simple, it would be the Japanese culture!
