Guest Detective for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration Case #231

The Imagine Artists in Residence have joined forces with CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration to create a few inspired layouts. 

I went back in time and found some photos of my son in one of his favorite costumes from the Halloween season.  In all honesty these costumes were worn many times after the holiday for many great play times.  These photos are from school on Halloween, the day when all the little girls were princesses and the super heroes were saving them during recess . . . that will be the other side for this layout when I have the time!  

I choose to work the the following prompts in the Evidence:  Stripes, bow, and stars.  Captain America is a big one for stars!  I started by punching the Royal Blue cardstock with EK Success border punch before adhering it to the Primary Red cardstock.  The red is die cut with Spellbinder's Cascading Stars, and several sizes of Standard Circles Large and Small to create embellishments.  The Royal Blue cardstock is also die cut into a circle to complete the Captain's shield.  Momenta's Cut & Emboss Stars is used to embellish the center of the shield with Canson Silver paper.  Another layer of silver paper is used in the shield.  The star embellishment is layered stars along with the craft thread tied in a bow. 

The star background strips are made with Buttery Yellow cardstock pressure embossed with Darice's 12" x 2" Assorted Stars embossing folder.  The surface is then inked with Memento Danube Blue.  Turquoise is embossed with The Paper Studio's Small Stars embossing folder, the surface is inked with Memento Lady Bug. 

Since I didn't have any striped paper on hand that was coordinated with the color scheme I decided to stamp my own.  Memento Danube Blue and Lady Bug along with Versa Magic Sea Breeze are stamped on the buttery yellow cardstock with stamps from the TPC Studio Dots & Stripes set.  

The Testimony was quick and easy!  The title is stamped in Memento Lady Bug on the Turquoise cardstock with Scrappy Cat's Playful Serie.  The Buttery Yellow cardstock is cut into strips and journaling is done in Memento Dual Tip Marker in Danube Blue.  The journaling is written with exclamations and with inspired words of Super, Awesome, and Wow. 

Do stop by CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration and check out the layouts with a Super Hero theme.  Today is Superman's birthday after all!
