February's kit-to-copy is from Studio Calico's August subscriber kit called "Pop Art". I have to say, it's not quite my "thing" as it contains a) pale pink and lilac b) realistic florals c) HUGE patterns ... so I struggled to see where I could start with my counterfeiting.
The most appealing thing to me in the kit were those diamond shaped puffy stickers ... and when I spotted some patterned paper from Pink Paislee with multicoloured diamonds, I decided that they would be my inspiration starting point! By adding some dots, stripes, grids, pale blue alphas and a little gold washi I had the basis for a whole kit:
I punched various sized circles from coloured vellum to imitate the Studio Calico "Circle Transparency Die Cuts". I then added some journalling cards and broke out some gold brads, orange gromlets and bling to give me some useable embellishments because feathers, especially green and blue rubber ones, don't really do it for me!

Well that just goes to show: you don't have to like a kit to be able to take inspiration from it ... though I'd hardly call my kit a copy ... would you?!?!
