Today we'd like to share some project ideas with you using the Kimono Vol 1 stamp set:
* colour them with markers (Copics, Distress, Marvy's...) or pencils
* highlight ares with the crayon resist technique
* sponge the image with distress inks
* stamp over coloured backgrounds or patterned paper
* emboss with black or gold or red embossing powder and colour the image inside
* highlight areas with glossy accents
Let's take a look at some projects using these stamps:
Details from Rachel:
The image was stamped with Jet Black Archival onto matt white cardstock and coloured with Distress Markers (Aged Mahogany, Wild Honey, Broken China, Shabby Shutters, Barn Door). I sponged a little Frayed Burlap Distress Ink around the edges of the image after I'd finished colouring it. Mounted the image onto red cardstock. Adhered a small strip of Japanese paper onto a folded blue card and wrapped a little piece of red embroidery floss aorund the left side. Adhered the stamped image onto the card and added some metal corners with glossy accents. Trimmed some words from the Kimono Wordstrip, mounted them onto red cardstock, then added them to the card using foam adhesive.
Here's what the stamps look like on an ATC, as you can see, they fit perfectly:
Details from Rachel:
I stamped and coloured the image the same as the card above. Adhered the image onto red ATC sized cardstock (3.5" x 2.5"). Added three red brads to the bottom right corner (gemstones would also work well!) and a Kimono Wordstrip to the left corner. I highlighted the fan and the writing in the top left corner with glossy accents and allowed to dry.
Michelle has created a series of ATC's:
Details from Michelle:
I stamped each Kimono lady onto collage patterned paper with Archival Plum and cut them out. I then distressed the edges using Distress Inks (Fired Brick & Mustard Seed) then matted them onto ATCs which were made out of black patterned paper with the edges distressed using scissors. In the lower left corner of each ATC I included a small Kimono Montage image, an Alphastrip letter, some ribbon and metal circles.
As you can see, these stamps are a lot of fun to play with! Hope you've enjoyed these projects using the Kimono Vol 1 Stamp set!
