Welcome to "Forgeries on the Fourth" where it is no crime to create your own version of the trendy, hip products from the inspiration kit using your own stash and ingenuity. Each month on the fourth, check out tutorials from your Master Forgers or links to resources they have found for you on the internet.
CSI (Case file 365-9)
This month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge we are using the unique inspiration
offered by Color, Stories, Inspiration blog (CSI)
While not a traditional kit, there are still endless options for pulling together a creative collection. We may need to use our magnifying glass, though, to search for some possible embellishments.
