C.S.I. Case File #1

    I hope you're all enjoying your weekend! I was SO excited to find this new site called C.S.I: Color, Stories, Inspiration.
I'm even more excited that I was able to complete the very first case file. It goes beyond just a color palette. Besides the 5 color palette, you have an evidence list, which is just different elements you can pick to use on your page, and a testimony list, which gives you different journaling ideas. I LOVE mysteries, so this was right up my alley. Here's what I did.
This was the Case File.
From the evidence list I used the bow, in my lacing, distressing, of course, a teacup, which I found somewhere on-line, and my lacy element is my doily, which I inked. I also used stamping for the frame around my photo.I used clear embossing powder so, it's kinda hard to tell. I also stamped 2 of my tags with a Prima script stamp. The leaves around the frame were also stamped and cut out.
From the testimony list I decided to use journaling on one of my tags. I took a close-up of it, if you want to read it.The chipboard scroll on the top photo is from Imaginarium designs, which I painted. I made the flowers myself using this awesome tutorial.
Here are some close-up pics.
