Mind The Scrap!

Welcome to February's edition of kit counterfeiting with the Counterfeit kit Challenge Blog.  If you are already hopping you should have reached me via Clair.  In which case you'll already know that while we generally forge an existing kit, this month we were given the inside gen on  Mind The Scrap's February Kit.  Armed with a list of the kit's ingredients, I was determined to make a dent in some of my TK Maxx shopping bargains this month and I managed to grab several papers that were a bit of a match.  First some tiny triangles and an ombre pink sheet, then some stark black on white, a transparency and some regular colourful curves, along with some arrow designs ... throw in some washi and some ribbon to add to the embellishments and my kit was born:

Mind you, once I saw the photo of the WHOLE kit-to-copy, I wasn't quite so sure that I'd got decent counterfeit ... maybe I'll check out the Forgeries on the Fourth post to add some extras.

I love your kit-and it's so soft and pretty! You did a wonderful job with the inspiration, I think!

Susanne said...

Love it. I have a ton of the MME Cut 'N Paste papers left too; it sure makes for a lovely kit.

Susan said...

Beautiful colors and I really like the touch of whimsy with the polka dots and the glasses paper.

Clair said...

I think it's an excellent interpretation of the inspiration kit! Lots of bright, cheerful colours and graphical styles! <3

Tina Campbell said...

I love your kit and love how you added bits of the colors from the original to your kit :) I like how you picked up the black for your accent color too :)

Such a pretty kit, looking forward to seeing how you use the transparency.

LOVE this kit and how you managed to use so much of one pre packed kit to fit the theme.... good luck with your transparency using :) xxx

Lisa said...

I'D say this is a great counterfeit - the colours are spot on! I am envious of that pink ombré and I've JUST realised - you have PINK in your kit!!! love it! I think this is a lovely kit and closer to the inspiration that you realise!

HA! Lisa and I were thinking the same thing. I had to make sure I was on the correct blog when I saw the PINK! ;-) You worked in that pesky pastel in just the right dose. You did a fab counterfeit and I hope you enjoy creating with it.

Julene Matthews said...

Fabulous interpretation! And the pink appears of course. Have fun.

I think your analysis of the kit was spot on, and the eyeglass paper is adorbs! Not sure how I missed half the hop this month - my apologies (eyes downcast)

I love your kit--it's a wonderful take on the original.
