Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop!

Welcome hoppers!

The challenge for this hop was to make a card or layout inspired by this sketch from 'Scraps of Darkness' - the same site that inspired our counterfeit kits this month. I'm such an over achiever with this kit, I made one of each!


A Valentine's Day card:



I took the gray cardstock frame by Little Yellow Bicycle that was in my kit and covered it with Ranger's Distress crackle paint.


And a layout:




Another vintage photo. This is my grandfather and his sister circa 1919.
I Glimmer Misted, Glazed & Glam'd the white card stock flowers that were in my kit. Also, I did pull one more item from my stash (I do that when I buy kits too) - A Kaisercraft wood flourish which I painted white and sprayed with a touch of the Glimmer Mist I used on much of the layout.


Thanks for stopping by!

The next blog on the hop is Dawn's.
