It’s been a while since I made a counterfeit kit, but with the wedding album finished and photos piling up it was time to put together a kit for the Bromsgrove Crop on Saturday.
yhis month’s kit is from Cocoa Daisy. I started with the papers and went through my ‘My Girl’, ‘Lucky Charm’ and ‘DIY Shoppe’ paper collections to find one to substitute for each in the sample kit. I think I may colour in the ruler paper with some coloured pencils to counterfeit the coloured rulers in the main kit. I found myself agreeing with Lisa about coloured cardstock – I rarely use it so I substituted a pink ombre paper for the pink cardstock.
I think I managed to cover most of the embellishments – although my bicycles are wooden rather than wire. I put in my pennant stamps to remind me to make some flags for the add on-kit. My version of the Maggie Holmes paper in the kit is on a cream background and this kit is white based so I substituted a different writing paper and threw in a few extra sheets for good measure and some liquid pearls.
It’s a little on the pink side but I’ll see how I get on and here it is packed up for the crop, with some ink pads and thickers thrown in for good measure.
I got two pages done at the crop. First was this one using the sketch from Sketchbook 365:
