Very pretty, but the thing is, I don't have anything in my stash that resembles my favourite elements of this kit. What's a respectable Counterfeiter to do but DIY some papers of her own?
Can you guess which ones my favourites were?
Let's go through them one by one, starting on the left with my vellums . . .
I picked a couple of stamps and stamped away on plain vellum, which I embossed with gold powder. The one on the right is a bit 90's weddingish perhaps? That's OK, I went to plenty of weddings in the 90's!
For the bokeh-inspired paper, I started by watching this video here:

Using my cutting mat as a guide, I marked off one inch stripes with a washi tape I don't love. I then transferred my cardstock to my teflon craft mat before painting the stripes. I did two coats for good measure . . .
After the paint was dry, it was just a matter of carefully peeling the washi tape away!
So what do you think? None of these techniques were difficult and all of them were fun!
Let me know which one is your fave? Or do you have some other DIY tricks up your sleeve?
Talk to you soon!
