090417 CKC September Forgeries

You may remember from my kit reveal that
I used the mood board from the Studio Calico blog as my inspiration.


These are the forgeries I've made for this kit:

The striped paper, based on the Snake Charmer Basket
 was quite easy. I used textured cardstock to mimic the woven texture.
I angled the ends of  1-1/4" strips of the blue, half in each direction to keep the texture showing.

The gold foiled wood veneers were irresistible!
I used some positively ancient product meant for fabric with Zig Blue glue.

The photo card just meant adding a hoarded Hambly rub-on to a scenic cut apart card!

I l-o-v-e pennants. A little work in Photoshop created a custom banner for my grandson!
I mounted it on yellow felt to give it a true pennant feel.

The cute enamel cup & the doodled tree paper made me itch to give it a try, so I grabbed a pencil first & then a Sharpie. I knew I had a tiny starburst stamp that would add the perfect touch to the eclipse!

 I hope I've proved once again that counterfeiting doesn't have to be elaborate or complex!
