I had a great time working with the Kimono papers (take a look at my blog Three Little Maids) so I decided to see what could happen if I incorporated the new Reveal It's.
I literally swooshed the brilliant Tim Holtz Oxides over the magical card and buffed it up. I used Fossilised Amber on the background card and the topper. It's a very useful trick to co-ordinate the look of a card. I wanted the topper to pop out so I mounted it onto black card. Personally I like black and yellow together. All that was left to do was paper punch a few blossom shaped flowers from scraps of Kimono paper and add a few gold pearl drops.
Again I created my own background colour using Wilted Violet. I then cut the card into 3 panels and stuck it down onto a 6 x 6 card. The card toppers are very sweet and I added to this one further by stamping small leaves and blossom flowers around the edge. I layered this up onto a die cut circle from the papers. I love the little punched flowers so added them to this card too along with a mix of ribbons.
This time I used red ink ( Fired Brick) synonymous with Japan. I blended the ink over the reveal it topper and the magical lanterns appeared. The same ink was then used on the matching blossom designed background. I layered up on black card again and die cut some matching flowers. This time I added a red flower sequin to the centre. Nuvo drops (Red Berry) were added to finish the card off
Last but not least I worked with Broken China. I inked and cut 3 panels again to create the background. The geisha girl toppers are adorable and don't need much to improve them but I did highlight them with a little sparkles. I cut an old sentiment tag to produce the three words. I'm sure you can see that I used the trademark flowers (which I cut from the left over from the sentiment tag) and added a matching butterfly to finish off.
The Kimono kit is fabulous but incorporate the reveal it's as well and the main kit will go so much further. That's all for now
