The February reveal on the 1st of the month
saw me promising I would be back with my
Forgeries on the Fourth today.
I was quite taken aback by how many of you lovely forgers said
you were looking forward to it
so thank you!!!
Firstly, remember the map paper from the kit?
This paper was probably my favourite part of the kit if I'm honest and I really wanted to get my forgery very close to the original.
I took to my cutting machine and got to work...
I applied Ferro Metal Effect Colour using a palette knife to create that raised effect through my homemade stencil.
I really am quite pleased with how it came out.
Next was the alpha paper.
I had just received a new set of dies through the post and need to try them out.
I haven't stuck them down on the photo but you get the picture right?
Spare random alphas that you know will never get used would also work.
To create the ephemera I used paper scraps, punches, a printer and some pro markers.
I found some images on the internet, printed them out and coloured them in
while the rest just used punches from my stash
I just don't do flowers however I thought I would give them a go....
Here I used dies but really didn't like the outcome
So I punched a few hearts, curled them and stuck them together
before adding a gem in the middle.
Still not great but better I think.
Anyway, those are my Forgeries on the Fourth
thanks for stopping by,
what will you forge for your kit?
