So Sweet | CSI: Color Stories Inspiration

Our second reveal at CSI has gone live – and it’s another beaut!!!

Here is my take on this challenge.

I worked with all those glorious colours! I was inspired by the vintage feel of the scene, so worked around that – scrapping a pic of my mom, Circa 1953. I cut the pic into an oval shape to fit behind the oval vintage frame. Instead of using metal, I used some metallic UTEE to give the appearance of distressed metal on the chippie frame. I did a bit of a watercolour effect on my background.

She Shines | CSI: Color Stories Inspiration

Our last challenge for April at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration still carries the Easter theme, and has another gorgeous inspiration image and colour palette.

So I used all the colours (even though my misted egg-shape came out a bit too orange for my liking, after I applied the Glossy Accents!). My Evidence used: strips, dots, flowers, something transparent and weaving. My Testimony is Cheer! How this new jacket of my daughters’ brings cheer whenever and wherever she wears it!

The Best Thing About Memories… | CSI

Our first challenge for CSI: Color Stories Inspiration for the month of May is an absolute stunner! I just ADORE this colour palette and the inspiration image has plenty of gorgeous features to inspire you!

I used all the colours in the palette provided. My evidence includes pattern similar to the wallpaper, textured paper, flowers. My testimony was from the May Prompt: A Recent Good Moment. The photo was taken on the last night we spent in Namibia while on holiday at the beginning of the year.

All You Need is Love | CSI: Color Stories Inspiration

Our mid month project at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration has gone live – and it is (as usual!) another beaut!

I worked with all the colours and used a water colour background paper to mimic the inspiration image. I have also used sweater pattern and wood print papers, as well as using heat to emboss (my title). I used a dotty stencil on my background to mimic the snowfall.


Christmas Memories | CSI

Our last challenge for 2021 at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration is such a cutie!

And this is how I solved this case:

I worked with pretty much all the colours – with the addition of green. I chose to do a neutral background, just like the inspiration image. I also adopted the ‘cutesy’ factor when adding elements – as well as the use of my cute photo! In addition, I have used stripes, a snowflake, presents, polka dots and a bow.
