Counterfeit Kit Layout

This is the third page I've done using my kit. I am still sticking with the wedding pictures because I have a whole stack of them and the kit goes with them perfectly!

Here's a page about my brother-in-law's sister; Aunt Lu-ann.

I used a half sheet of pp from my kit and I added a deco border from a Martha Stewart punch.

I made the flower using a Tim Holtz Alterations diecut. I used the french script stamp that I had in my kit and I stamped black on cream cardstock. Then I ran it through my cuttlebug with the flower die and assembled my flower according to the directions I found on this blog. I smeared some Distress Stickles on the petals and heated with a heat tool (who knew you could do THAT?) to create a little dimension......sooo cool! Also finished off the flower with 3 pearls from my kit.

I used one of the Daisy D tags from my kit and added a few flowers which I also used the distress stickles and pearls on. I tied a little piece of black ribbon around the stems that actually came from the Narratives tag I used on LO#1. Loving the way this page looks and thrilled that not only did I do technique, I made my own flower and used some really old stash! I love this counterfeit kit thing!
I added one 7 Gypsies sticker and some old Wordsworth sticker letters that were not in my kit.

Thanks for looking!
