CSI Case File #231



Hello there! I am excited to share that I am a Guest Detective with C.S.I. Color, Stories, Inspiration. This is my first time playing along with this scrapbooking challenge, and I am really excited to join in with Case File #231.

Here is the Case File.

I thought that the Case File had so many great elements and aspects to it, and I knew I wanted to use photos from the lake that is near our home. I found some fun pictures from one of the times we walked our dogs to the lake. Looking over the case file, I was inspired by the mushrooms, and used a few from Stampendous. They were colored with Memento Markers and then fussy cut. My layout's background was made by stamping the Summer Leaves Perfectly Clear set all over with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink.

The Case File prompted us to have our journaling inside of a pocket, which I made out of a deep green cardstock. I wrote about how we love to explore the beauty of what is practically in our own backyard. I stamped a few images from Stampendous on the pocket and heat embossed it with gold powder.

Here's the cute little frog that I colored, and you can see how pretty the leaves look in the background. 

I've got to say, doing this Case File was a great challenge, and a lot of fun. I will be playing along again soon for sure! Thank you so much to the C.S.I.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
