Hi and welcome! I hope your weekend had a good start. There is a new CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge up. Here's the case file:
I made a layout about a very cool dinosaur exhibit we went to recently. An amazing place for a little boy interested in dinosaurs, even though some of them that moved around and made noise were a little scary. From the evidence I used: Glossy Accents, leaves, music paper and layers. The testimony is inspired by the something strange theme and I was going to tuck it in between the layers but only remembered about that once I had adhered everything together. For the background, I used the back of one of the papers in Tim Holtz Destinations Paper Stash, which looks a little like the skin of a dinosaur. Behind the photo there are layers of three manila papers which were coloured with Distress Ink and stamped with three background stamps. The purple paper is inked Motif Resist cardstock and I also used some vellum ephemera pieces.
The background was stamped with a grid stamp and with two sentiment stamps. I like the way you can peek the other layers through the vellum pieces. The title letters were die cut from white mat board with the Block Talk Lowercase die, inked with Dusty Concord, sanded and coated with Glossy Accents.
A second sentiment, partly hiding behind leaves die cut from kraft-core cardstock.
I dyed cheese cloth with Distress Inks and added it in between the layers. There is also a piece of Linen Ribbon (I love linen ribbon) and more vellum layers.
Thank you so much for visiting today!
