August Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Today I found myself with a few moments spare so I hit the internet in search of a challenge to do...which lead me to the Counterfeit Kit Blog. As it is still pretty close to the start of August I had a look at the kit which is from Gossamer Blue and thought to myself they are not colours I usually use.... so this should be challenging.
This is the Counterfeit Kit;
I raided my stash as I using the selected counterfeit kit for inspiration and this is what I came up with - please excuse the lighting on the photos as it was dark when I took the photos and the flash cast a strange light onto them.

 The Papers

I picked the papers first and tried to stick with the same family type with the colours - there were six things I told myself I was looking for when going through my papers - dark green, mustard yellow, stripes that match the same colours I have picked, navy floral,  patterned red and a subtle pattern.

The Embellishments  

 Whilst looking for the embellishments I was telling myself - flat, colours to match, tags and labels. I picked some cut-a-part sheets as I do not have many tags, some project life cards, stickers and labels in similar colour scheme. Not too sure how it all will come together on a layout, but I am looking forward to the challenge.

Tracey your papers are wonderful. I'm jealous! The whole kit will be fun to use I'm sure. Looking forward to seeing what it produces.

I would definitely buy your kit! Love that half of your papers have pattern & the whole collection a wee bit more color variation yet stays grounded to the inspiration by the navy. Scrap on & show us what you make, please ��
