CSI Case File 162 for Creative Embellishments!!!!!

Hello fellow crafters!!  Brandi here again with another layout created as guest designers from Creative Embellishments for CSI this month!  Here's a look at the case:

And here is my take (all evidence and testimony is in red):

This is a picture of the hubs and I on our one year wedding anniversary :-)  I used the Simple Stories "Homespun" collection which matched the scene perfectly!!!

I started with a textured solid white cardstock base and lightly splattered black distress ink across the page.  I used a circle stencil from the Crafters Workshop and distress markers to add circles in random areas.  

I mixed some molding paste with Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink in "Butterscotch" until I achieved my desired yellow color, I used the paste mixture over a Tim Holtz Sunburst layering stencil to the left of my photo!

I outlined all my papers with a thin black sharpie (one of my favorite techniques) to help the colors stand out against the all white background.  I used the Circle Bokeh Stamp and Versa Ink to clear emboss the pattern on my chipboard photo frame from the Together Frame Set. After heated, I used Ranger distress ink, Lindy's Flat Black Tornado, and Black Soot distress ink to color the piece. I dried it, then misted with homemade glimmer mist (made from water and perfect pearls) for some  shimmer :-)

I used the same black ink to color the "Love" title from the Everlasting Love title set (the smaller one) and various sticker letters from the collection to make my title (inspired by the "space" theme).  

I did my journaling in the "Q&A" format :-)  

I finished the page with some flowers by Prima and Petaloo, stickers, and die-cuts from the collection! 

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
