CSI #114 - The Story

Really enjoyed creating a LO for Colour Stories Inspirations 113 challenge, and was drawn in by the colour palette for the CSI 114, so here I go again.

The Story

Loved the vibrant colour palette for CSI #114.  Went for a mixed media background using one of the new Tim Holtz stencils and texture paste, which I sprayed with Inchworm chalkboard mist.  I overlayed the masking with stamping, torn strips of washi tape and rubons, then layered a LYB transparency strip and various pp's under my photo.

For the Testimony I decided to journal a dialogue, which reads:
Me    "Come on Luke, please be nice, I need a couple of pics for my LO."
Luke  "Mum, is this really necessary.  I'm in the middle of something."
Me     "Yes, I'm desperate.  I promise I'll be quick and I'll love you forever."

"I'll love you forever is a phrase I use all the time to soften up the kids and hubby, when I want something done".  Sometimes I get lucky and it works!

Materials Used:  Kaisercraft, Basic Grey, Simple Stories pp's, Tim Holtz bubble stencil, Prima washi tape, MME, Bo Bunny and Kaisercraft stamps, Little Yellow Bicycle transparency strip, 7 Gypsies and Tim Holtz rubons, Simple stories, diecut stickers, Lindy's Stamp Gang mist-midnight rendevouz, Tattered Angels Chalkboard mist-inchworm, Tattered Angels Glimmermist-scarlet, Craft Queen washi tapes, Texture Paste, Ranger Archival ink-black

Thanks so much for stopping by.
