Counterfeit Kit Challenge - Forgeries On The Fourth

Hello, everyone! Happy Thursday! It is almost the weekend - do you have any fun plans? Ours is looking to be pretty quiet and relaxing and I am hoping to get lots of scrappy time in.

Today is the 4th and that means it is "Forgeries on the Fourth" day at Counterfeit Kit Challenges. This month's inspiration kit had a few items in it that I wanted to try and counterfeit. Here's a look at the inspiration kit from Hip Kit Club March 2019. You can find more photos over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog today.

Here are two of the papers that I wanted to counterfeit:

I love the black and white striped paper with the brighter stripes on the bottom, so I grabbed one of the black and white striped papers and the washi tape that I had included in my kit and went to work.

First, I cut about 2 inches off the bottom of my striped paper and attached it to a piece of white cardstock. 

Then, I started adding washi tape to the white cardstock - trying to keep close to the colors in the inspiration piece.

Here is the end result:

I love the way this paper turned out and I can't wait to use it!

For my next paper, I pulled out a piece of white cardstock, a circle stamp and some ink that matched some of the papers in my kit.

I randomly stamped the circles all over the cardstock - trying to not go overboard because less is more sometimes!

This is what I ended up with:

I can see myself pulling ink pads in all of the colors in my kit and making more of these papers!

Next, I was inspired by the butterflies and camera images in the inspiration kit. I found a few stamps in my supplies that would work and stamped them out in a variety of colors to match my kit:

I then fussy cut them out so they are ready to use when I need them.

Here's a look at my forgeries all together:

I cannot wait to put these forgeries to work! Head on over to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog to see the other forgeries from the other Master Forgers. We would love to see what you create, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a wonderful day!
