This month's challenges at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog have been great fun - and I've been making a dent in my earthy-toned take on the original kit-to-copy from Burlap & Buttercups. How appropriate that I used some buttercups (or at least yellow flowers) on my page for Challenge#3 which asked for us to scrap with a shape.
I've got a new circle cutter (£1.99 from The Works) and was giving that an airing, so there are several circles/part circles in evidence (including the gutting of the base card behind the patterned papers). I love this photo of No.1 Son and Child No.3 having a quick hug while posing for my camera on a Sunday afternoon walk in the woods. They are (mostly) good friends now that they don't live together all year and frequently gang up on me when No.1 Son comes to visit!
The afore-mentioned yellow flowers were cut from the K&Co Wild Garden paper and, rather than layer them for dimension, I simply cut around some of the petals and raised them up instead of sticking them down. Everything is from my June kit apart from the bronze ink and the Basic Grey chipboard monogram "2" and the grungeboard "apostrophe-S".
On a side note: I put two sets of tiny alpha stickers (My Little Shoe Box & Cosmo Cricket) into my June kit because of their colours - and I thought that was the only difference apart from the font, but it's only the yellow set that has punctuation and numerals - I shall have to take more care when shopping as they are useful to have in the set.
Here's a sneak peek at another page I've made from the kit but can't yet share with you - a whole different colour way of blue, cream and brown.
