Woo Hoo! Welcome to my 100TH POST! So please follow along and there will be a little surprise gift drawn at random from my followers at the end of the month!
So… here is my take on this month’s kit from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog... appropriately called 'Crime of the Century''
To be honest.. this challenge threw me a bit as I wasn’t entirely sure about what to choose due to them deciding on a new format. Their challenge was very much a new idea as we had a CSI ‘case’ to solve.
This entailed ‘inspecting’ a photo and following the ‘clues’ to your choice of papers. From this I ‘investigated’ into my stash and found the ‘evidence’ you see before you!
After the brash colours of my February Hearts and Flowers in red, dark greys and black.. and the brightness of the colours in my March ‘Great Expectations’ kit I was pleased to be able to change tack again and have a soft, muted range of colours to choose from.
For a change, and to keep things ‘mysterious’ I started choosing my kit from my embellishment stash rather than my patterned papers and I dug deep into my ‘evidence’ pile to find this range of candi dots, buttons, wooden embellishments, bling, bakers twine, ribbon and other bits and pieces. I 'suspect' they will get a lot of use...no groaning now!
I then investigated more 'evidence' and chose the softer hues of the colour palette and opted for pale blues and soft green with teal highlights as the patterned paper and I chose soft cream and white as the background cardstock with a couple of aqua pieces for good measure.
The list of ‘evidence’ also included some ‘clues’ as to the items that we should be including.
These included ‘something sheer’ so I chose some vellum, tulle white flowers and some lace and netting. They also suggested ‘something puffy’ and for this I intend to add some cloud die cuts- you don’t get a lot more puffy than clouds do you.. and some lovely soft bloomer ribbon too.
The evidence I will present over the coming month will include LO’s incorporating ‘dream holidays’ and ‘sleep, light and inspiration’. I am no doubt the choices of my ‘case’ will undoubtedly lead to some dreamy LO’s… so do remember to pop back from time to time to see how the mystery is unravelling and don’t forget to follow me to be in with a chance for a small prize!
Thanks for looking!
