110418 CKC Forgery on the Fourth

The inspiration kit papers:

Although I really adored the color scheme of the inspiration kit, when I searched for a larger patterned paper to start from I ended up with the center paper below - 2010 Basic Grey Hopskotch "Kissing Tag".

I knew right away that the clamshell pattern would be an easy forgery of the Crate Paper by Maggie Holmes/Willow Lane "Violet" b-side paper, using a Prima stencil & some mists!

So what does the photo below have to do with my second forgery?

This coffee cup sits on my desk because it makes the most perfect coffee ring stamp! I used Distress Inks blotted onto the cellophane packaging on the right & misted to create a wet ink puddle to stamp with my cup & blot with a stencil brush. A few splats of walnut ink finished off the forgery of the American Crafts by Vicki Boutin/Field Notes "Daydreamer" paper.

 So how did I do? I hope I inspired you to give counterfeiting a whirl. It's a great way to get elements of the inspiration kit into yours by making a coordinating version. Have a go at it!

  1. Terrific ideas, Leslie!! It's making me re-think some of my stencils and how I might use them to copy-cat some of the papers in the curated kit from Citrus Twists! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. You are so clever. I learn so much from your posts!
