My "Counterfeit" Stamp Set

Yesterday I shared my main kit for the month of June.  Today I am sharing the little stamp add-on that I made based on Scraptastic's After the Storm stamp set.
 
Here is the inspiration set (left) and my version (right):
My stamps are a hodge-podge from Studio G, The Craft's Meow, Paper Smooches, Imaginisce, We R Memory Keepers, Unity, {ippity}, Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn, and Studio Calico.  I did some masking and building with the sun/clouds.  I think it came out cute!  Also, I double-stamped my stars to give the same sketched effect as the stars in the inspiration kit.  Fun!  I might try this with my clouds on a project, too.
 
After looking through some of the other Scraptastic stamp sets, I knew that I wanted to add a few more from my stash.  Some of them are shown above, plus I threw in a few more for good measure.  A kit can never have too many stamps, right? :)
 
I hope that you will play along with us this month-check it out here: www.counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.com

Love the idea of creating a counterfeit stamp kit! I may need to add something similar to my June kit!

What a brilliant idea!!! I don't use my stamps often enough, or I just use my much beloved ones and the others sit and collect dust. Hmmm..... this is a GREAT idea!!

I'm gonna give this a go.

Wow, that is a fabulous idea to forge a stamp set - and you did a fine job - they should lock you up!

A counterfeit stamp set ... what a great idea! Although I do like to include at least three stamp sets in my kit, but I never thought to do this.
