The Stamp Man ATC

Here is the ATC that I made for The Stamp Man swap this month. The theme is Oriental which was chosen by me, but when I came to make them I was a bit stuck for ideas. I have used all my oriental stamps for swaps before at some time, and wondered what I could do different with them.In the end I decided to make three the same using one of my favourite Crafty Individuals stamps.I stamped the whole image with Onyx Black
  Versafine ink onto red card and trimmed it down a bit. Then I stamped just the right hand border onto some shiny gold paper with Black Stazon, cut it out and stuck it to the main image. Next I stamped the sentiment onto ivory card and edged it with a Krylon gold pen. I also edged the red card with the Krylon, and coloured the little fan with it. (It was silver originally) I wrapped some gold threads around just inside the border and fixed the sentiment at the bottom and the fan just above it, and mounted the whole thing on a black ATC sized card.
Thanks for taking the time to have a look. Jean.
