Budapest - CSI case file no. 289

CSI has a wonderful case file, open to many interpretations.
I loved the colors, of different hues of blue, with a touch of crimson/burgandy red.
I used a photo (one of many) I took on our visit to Budapest on Summer 2016. I went there with my youngest, while the eldest went to a different tour.
We had so much fun on our vacation! Budapest is so beautiful, and there are so many things to see and to do there.
I was inspired the the theme of building sitting right on the water line and by the waves in the sea, so I created a scene of houses and waves.
I was also tempt to use my street lamp die, as I have a passion for street lamps....LOL
From the clues I used: stripes (on one of the backing papers, sailboat/airplane (on the small postcards), ocean themed elements (the wavy border), eyelets, lantern (well, kind of), clouds, and wet medium.
I used the wonderful sketch by the talented Laura Whitaker, from My Creative Scrapbook:

Most of the papers are Maja Designs', with a small addition of Echo Park.
I used Lindy's shaker (Frozen Jack Frost) and spray (Merci Beaucoup Mint) for the splatters. The street lamp was covered with Lindy's ep (Merci Beaucoup Mint), and the title thickers were covered with Lindy's ep (Gilded Burgundy Brass). For the script on the background (49andMarket Pascale's stamp) I used LIndy's ep Twilight Blue Slate)
Here're some close-ups on the details:
