040422 CKC April Forgery on the Fourth


Forery is our reason for being here at Counterfeit Kit Challenge! It's been quite awhile since I've thrown myself into counterfeiting & I must confess I had a blast.

Papers and Beyond's Follow Your Bliss kit papers

First up is the flashiest - that Vicki Boutin wreath. I began by using the largest Altenew Creative Cutout: Nested Wreath (and by the way, what a great value - there are 9 pieces in this product pack) mounted to OneCanoeTwo's 2018 Saturday Afternoon Mosaic b-side.

Then I saw this beautiful DT creation from Steffi Ried at Paige Taylor Evans - swoon!

I used a variety of flower stamps from Vicki Boutin Fernwood  & Color Study on vellum with white embossing powder to finish off my wreath forgery, popping them up for dimension.

#2 is the Vicki Boutin Field Notes Field Notes paper. I remembered that I had a fountain pen stamp & started to forage for other stamps that might work. My version is ultra-simplified (feels like cheating!) but still carries the vintage vibe through. I adore VB papers but almost hate to cover it all up with my photos! This way I can easily use this version. I used Pink Paislee House of Three 2011 Daily Junque stampset - a total fave.

#3 the feathers. I found a bunch of feather stamps in my stash but couldn't decide how to get the colored effect without too much work, so I went for vintage gold heat embossing! I used the whole pack of 12 Momenta feather stamps as they came, which made quick work of the stamping. I just rotated it in different directions to fill the space. It's tough to capture the shine!

#4 are the happy pink daisy paper. I used a Vicki Boutin Color Study & an Inkadinkado floral stamps to heat emboss with white on a 2014 Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine paper! Another easy-peasy.

#5 is the tone on tone green leaves. My quick solution (after considering endless stamping) was to use a 6x6" Catherine Pooler Flourish & Whimsy stencil with spray inks. I used printer paper to mask off the edges & rotated the stencil one turn to the right each time I moved on to the next section. I sprayed first with Heidi Swapp Color Shine Chartreuse for the darker leaves.

After I did the four quadrants I oversprayed with Citron Color Shine. The final result is much less elegant than I had hoped but a fair forgery!

 Last but not least #6 - the coffee cup stains! I used pieces of The Crafters Workshop 12x12" Well Rounded stencil plus a Recollections brand Splat stampset with Catherine Pooler, Vicki Boutin and Vic ? inks. I kept it somewhat simple again so I won't cover up the work I did.

The only other counterfeit that I made was a few of the wood button embellis.

Now I can get busy scrapping! Hope you are inspired :-)
