Victorian Fan

2Peas are having a winter festival of stamping this week, and one of their challenges is to make a Victorian fan, using this template. 'Japanning', or the art of black and gold lacquered woodwork, was very popular in this era, so I recreated my own version of it here. This also meets the Wednesday Stamper theme of Asia.
