GC99: Fans

Continuing with the Asian inspiration over on Gingersnap Creations - today's challenge is FANS!

I took this more figuratively then literally. I opted to make a fan-fold medallion to highlight my koi.

When I make a background with a spray and/or ink method, I will use a clean tag to "clean-up" any extra color on the mat. I did this background tag last week when I did the "mist" background.

I did a simple fan-fold medallion. This is two pieces of 12 x 1.5 - scored every 1/4 inch.

It's been a LONG time since I colored anything with Copics but I did do the gold fish.

Stamps: Great Impressions KOI, Memory Box DOT CIRCLE
Paper: tag, orange scrap
Ink: Memento
Accessories: Glimmer Mist, Twinkling H2O's, left ribbon, pearls, yarn
