in the middle of the awesome Olympics, I got to play with some pretty embellishments that the Craft Cottage sent me along with the best "inspiration" image :)
I was inspired by the hand drawn designs on the Elephants to decorate a folding fan. The designs reminded me of henna so used brown as my main line colour and let myself flow with the hand drawn feeling.
I took colour inspiration from the embellishments and used the included butterflies as templates for my main image. I drew around them to make the main pattern and then added hand drawn details. The fabric on the fan did allow the colours to bleed a bit but I liked the look in the end.
I added the flowers, jewels and beads from the embellishment pack to the handle for a final touch.
It was nice to play for a bit and be a guest without any pressure ... go and check out what everyone did over at the blog ... and take part to win some goodies!
