Counterfeit Kit Club

Here is a little kit put together last weekend for Counterfeit Kit Club.  It was meant to be small and just for two pages worth of scrapping but I reckon I'll get plenty more out of it the way I use supplies!

The inspiration was the new Pink Fresh collection.  I picked out the colours and set to work forging the papers with my watercolours.  I had so much fun!  Remind me why I haven't Counterfeit Kit-ted in so long?!

OK, so I took the essence of the papers rather than copying each and every design exactly, but that is good because no one else will have these papers!  I pulled out a few sequin mixes and felt hearts from SpiegelMom Scraps and some black enamel hearts from Bella Blvd.  I'll pull alphas when I need them.  Herbert Budgie got in on the act, and was rather taken with the black hearts, thus I named the kit "Oi!  They're Not Your Hearts!"

The plan was to make a start on Herbie's album with this kit... fast forward a week and I have managed to make one layout.  Poor, but health has been against me. Let's take a looksee...

It is based on a challenge from Sara.  I channelled Our Little Pumpkin.  I took the layout, squished it to 9x12 and gave it my twist. 

 I took three lengths of lace from Crafty Ribbons and painted them with Daniel Smith Watercolours, the same paints used to forge the papers.

Thanks for stopping by!
