I broke into my April Counterfeit Kit today. I love this kit-such bright, quirky papers and fun embellies! I made 3 cards today:
This one is my favorite! I played with different techniques on the chalkstock, but the one that I liked best was to use Versamark ink and white embossing powder. The heart border is just punched hearts adhered, then machine-stitched. I will definitely be using this simple technique again-I can't wait to check out all of my old tiny Paper Shaper punches!
OK, so I love this one, too! That green watercolor dot is one of my favorites from the Sketchbook collection. I colored my butterflies with Copics. Why have I never thought of that before? Everyone swears by mists, but I HATE using mists. I never get the effect that I want, and I get ink all over EVERYTHING! The Copics were perfect for getting just the right coverage on these little butterflies.
This is one of the little circle tags that I counterfeited. Although I loved the ones from Elle's Studio, I was more inspired by THESE lovelies from the Crate Paper blog. I love dimension, and layered punches, foam tape, a veneer butterfly and a puffy heart gave me that dimension that I wanted. The rub-ons that I used were SUPER old ones from my stash, too! BONUS! :)
Thanks for popping by!
