From the evidence items I used: woodgrain (both paper and stamp), paint and sand off, weathered look, stuff in a pocket. From the testimony items: transparent container, summer story in winter. I had a lot of photos from this occasion, so I did a double layout:
In my scrap box I found a piece of dry embossed cardstock, which had been inked, gessoed and clear embossed (I described how on this card). I cut it up into panels and used them on the layout, they fit so well with both the theme and the case file.
I also used a bunch of old postage stamps and some vintage photos, which fit since this island has a very old and interesting history.
Thank you for looking! Have a great weekend!
