Karen is with us today with a gorgeous altered Tando Creative fan, which is one of their latest product. Love how she added the string all around, nice little touch.
Let us know what you think in a comment below.
For my 'At the Seaside' themed piece I have chosen to play with the new medium size Tando Creative Fan. These are sooo versatile! I painted the base with PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in Ice Blue and overstamped with a Crackle stamp and Versafine in Smokey Gray.
Unfortunately this blurred a bit but as I was trying to keep the colours soft I didn't mind!
Tip: When you are decorating one of the Tando Creative Fans please be aware that all the segments are slightly different.
Using the upper section as a template I drew and cut 2 pieces of paper from the Crafty Individuals Book 6 (The Seaside), then cut three more segments from plain white card. (Tip: Always a good idea to number the backs) Using Crafty Individuals Stamp Set CI-272, I stamped onto the white card in the Smokey Gray. I stamped again onto scrap card and coloured the shells and seahorses with Derwent Inktense Pencils. Then I clear embossed the coloured pieces before cutting them out. I rubbed a little Distress Ink in Broken China around the edges of the segments before glueing the shells on.
Using a mix of PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in Cheesecake and Pumpkin Soup I painted the top section. Glossy Accents was applied and while it was still a little sticky I attached the rough string and when dry I glued the top section to the bottom. The card segments were glued in place and the seahorses added. To finish off I used more string to attach two shells and then glued another stamped shell over the top.
