Together Forever - CSI case file no. 270

Hello dear friends and welcome to my blog.
I'm sharing my DT layout for case file no. 270 at CSI, with this beautiful photo inspiration:
Once again I've used my January Counterfeit Kit, but added some diy embellishments.
I was very inspired by the color scheme, and used a photo of myboys playing. The photo was taken on our vacations, 4.5 years ago. So much happened since that photo was taken...
My clues were: woodgrain, branches, flowers, clock and brush lettering.
I started by stamping here & there with 49 & Market Pascale's writhing stamp with gray ink and a MME stamp with brown ink. Then I used Lindy's Tainted Love Teal spray, and some splatters with Lindy's Steampunk Sepia spray.
The flowers were stamped with anoter MME stamp on a heavy whiegh watercolor paper, using a Ranger's ink (Yeallo Chrome), then I fussy cut them and added an enamel dots in brown.
The leaves were made in two versions. the bigger ones I die cut with my Big shot, and then embossed with Lindy's Spring Leaf Chartreuse ep. For the smaller leaves I stamped on a watercolor paper, fussy cut and colored with Lindy's Aloha Avocado spray.
For the branches I die cut a watercolor paper and colored with Lindy's Steampunk Sepia spray. I really love the shimmer look on the branches!
I also stamped a Kaisercraft's clock stamp on a gray cs with Ranger's ink (cornflower blue, which has a grayish blue color).
As for the title, I used Creative Embellishment chipboard, first covered with Finnabair white gesso and the heat embossed with two Lindy's ep - Twilight Blue Slate and Byzantine Bronze. I love the two colored effect on the chippboard:
The sub title was stamped and mounted on a woodgrain pp, embellished with a stamped arrow, a flower, leaves and branches.
for the final touch I added some enamel dots in coordinating colors.

And here's the full layout once again:
Thank you for visiting my blog and I appreciate your comments very much.
