Hello and welcome to my little blog by the sea in Wales.
This month I am joining in again with the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Member’s Blog Hop. Before I Firstly I need to show you my kit.
This months kit was March’s Kit from Polly Scarps:
This is my kit:
I had the two envelopes in my stash so I started with those. I then picked out the navy, light blue, green, yellow and red. Added in some alphas, washi, stickers and lots of embellishments. I hope to make some of my own too. I’ve not included mists and stamps as I will use them as and when needed.
After I photographed this kit my Studio Calico monthly kits came and I had some navy mist and embossing powder which I will include with this kit.
Now on to the reason for your visit. You should have come to me from Lisa.
Now I emailed off to say I would like to take part in the hop and then 4 days later looked at the challenge; masking. OMG, MASKING! Every time I have used masks it goes oh so wrong. I mean really wrong. I had signed up for this hop so I was completing a LO successfully or not.
After 4 different masks and 9 sheets of cardstock I decided enough was enough. I am really not happy with the misting but it is done now and I wasted enough product and made such a mess I just couldn’t try any more.
This is my LO:
Really, really not happy at all with it. I had wasted 8 sheets of cardstock and decided I had to do something with the misted bits. So I got out the punches. The banner and the circles are what I cut out:
Prefer this LO but the masking it not that obvious. Perhaps small and abstract is the answer.
From here you should make your way over to Sherrie.
The full blog hop list is published on the CKC site so if you get lost along the way head over there.
I’d love if you could leave a comment so I know that you were here. Thanks for visiting and happy hopping.
