They set this picture as an Inspiration Challenge, and I loved the mix of colours and elements. There was a blog hop of fabulous examples too, so I couldn't resist joining in - it just meant that I added a few things to my counterfeit kit contents.
I got inspiration from everything in the picture - the colours, the embellies and the quote. Here's my layout (click image to see it larger):
I made the crochet flowers and the pinwheel, and used buttons, brads, the flower paper, alphas and the journaling card from my counterfeit kit. I also zig-zag stitched the flower paper onto a metallic green piece of cardstock - I always have trouble zig-zagging like this - when I get to the corners I keep going the wrong way. It's very annoying but I guess I just need to practice more!
Once I'd finished I challenged myself to make a quick card using leftovers and the same inspiration picture. The card didn't end up being a quick make though - because I had the same trouble with the zig-zag stitch and ended up finishing it by hand stitching! Here it is (click to see it larger):
I just bought these A6 Papermania Kraft card blanks the other day and I love them, I think they'll be appearing a lot.
If you're inspired by the Polkadot Door Designs picture to make something, then you have until the 15th to enter the challenge - head on over and take a look here.
Or if you've been inspired to make a counterfeit kit and don't know what that's all about, you can see the blog here.
I think I'm having a crafting splurge before the baby arrives (due 7th July) - it doesn't seem like long left now! x
