041821 April CKC Challenge #2


 Don your beret & join in with the spirit of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge forger vibe & scraplift the SCT Design Team!

Choose from an assortment of single page, double spread & card inspiration from the Garden Party inspiration kit creations by the Scrapbook & Cards Today Design Team.
Link here to view the project gallery found below the kit reveal, including detail shots. Maybe one of the close-up elements alone will inspire you! 

My favorite was this one by SCT Design Team Member Nathalie DeSousa:

My kit didn't include any cut files but this Momenta die seemed perfect! I used it as a stencil for a misted background using Shimmers Vibes: Plum Pudding, Sunset Strip, Seas the Day & Sweet Heart...

Then I backed a 5th cut with the 2011 My Mind's Eye/Love Me "Pink Hex" paper, b-side (x & o) and popped it up with craft foam for a little more dimension.

I added some clusters in a visual triangle until I was happy with them. I really wanted to use up those stacked florals from Shimelle's 2019 Never Grow Up collection. A couple of Instax photos were planned to use from a date lunch later in the day so I included the chipboard camera, which became very important to the little story.

I decided to hand stitch the love words on the background for some texture. Then I started to stamp a border, but did NOT love it... time for some camouflage a la Master Forger Tara! 

That's much better! Added a little journaling & the photos & done!
