So this is our most recent Case File (still open until Sunday) at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.
Clues I used...Evidence: wood/woodgrain, grid pattern, damask, envelope, ruler, tags, numbers, buttons, paint, loops, stars; Testimony: Tuck story into envelope.
Here are some details. I have so many packages of Heidi Swapp chipboard letters. I use them any chance I get. I bought scads of them at a time when they were pretty much the only chipboard letters you could buy--this was pre-Thickers era. I used lots of odds and ends on here. chipboard button by Prima, Brad by Teresa Collins, labels by Jenni Bowlin, epoxy sticker by Making Memories, wood veneer elements by Studio Calico.
I tucked a little journaling card into the glassine envelope so my sister could write some reflections, and used some eyelets and twine to close the envelope. I tucked a bit of cheesecloth between the layers. The blue chipboard letters are also Heidi Swapp.
All my papers I used were scraps (except for the background paper). Papers I used are My Mind's Eye (background paper); Foofala (teal damask); Cosmo Cricket (salmon paper), Chatterbox (blue polka dot); Echo Park (ruler, tag). In the background, I used white acrylic paint, a chevron studio calico stencil with stamp ink, grid stamp by Kaiser Craft, a roller stamp by American Crafts (picture perfect), and splatters of mist in a bunch of different colors.
So that bit on the left wasn't initially supposed to be there, but I goofed when I cut my paper. I kept looking at it and it didn't seem right--I had trimmed it 7 x 8!
