Follow Your Dreams - Counterfeit Kit Challenge January 2019

I have a confession - I lost my mojo :(. maybe it's the winter, maybe it's the (too) much hours spent it work. I don't know, I just lost it.
But then I saw the new Counterfeit Kit, and boom! I felt my creative juices flow again.
The funny thing is that the Felicity Jane kit they're counterfeiting is far away from my usual style... LOL it called Hannah, and it's very girly one:
I started working my usual way when I play with CKC - sorting the patterns, the colors and the embellishments in the original kit, and then looking for items from my stash that can fit.
The colors are very soft - pink, pale blue, grayish blue, white, black and brown.
I found some dp in my stash that can match with colors and patterns, but the real fun was counterfeiting the embellishments.
I used stamps of leaves, flowers and an arrow, with black and other colors of inks and then fussy cut the shapes, leaving a white border.
For the prhases it black hand writing with white edges, I used some dies and I really like how it came out.
Instead of black scalloped washi tape, I used a decorative border die and cut two stripes - one in black and the other in pale gray.
I also made two pink bows from silk ribbon and made a bow and a knot from dark blue ribbon on paper clips.
Here are my counterfeited embellishments:
I also added some pre-made die cuts, molds, doilies, baker's twine and flair buttons.
Here are all the embellies:

And my whole kit - "Follow Your Dreams':

I'm already working on a layot from this kit... how fun.

I'm so happy that you jumped right in even though this one isn't your usual style! The Hannah kit also had the same impact on me...I was feeling less than creative but once I pulled my kit, I couldn't wait to start using it! Your embellishments are amazing - you have such a talent for creating beautiful pieces!

Libeeti: Your copy cats are a reflection of "Hannah"! Your forgery embellishments are fabulous! Even all the purchased ones mixed with your created ones will make some terrific layouts! Can't wait to see how you use your January kit!!!
