September Challenge#2 (CSI#37)

Hello everyone,

For this month only, CSI and Once Upon a Sketch have decided to join forces and offer challenges that combine both a case file as well as a sketch. Such a great union of challenges that I thought I must give it a go.  For more details about the challenges go here.

I decided to enter Challenge #2 (CSI #37).
Here is the case file:

The sketch must be used, as well as all the colours in the scheme, at least 2 elements from the 'evidence' and at least 1 element from the 'testimony'.

Here is my entry:

From the 'evidence', I used stripes and dots, a book page (for the hexagons and flower), some pen work and circles - if you categorise the gears as circles. From the 'testimony', I used my own hand-writing font as well as the word 'think'.
Here are some close-ups:

Supplies used: cardstock (watercolour paper); paper (Kaiser); chipboard (Imaginarium & Kaiser); acrylic paint; hexagon die-cut (Die-namics); brad (Basic Grey); rhinestones (Kaiser); pearls (KanbanCrafts); acrylic paint dabber-pearl (Ranger); chandelier garland (Magnolia), alpha's (Bella! Chipz)..

The due date for this challenge ends September 24, 2:00pm AEST, so still a little time to enter if you haven't already. Challenge #3 (CSI #38) is already up as well, so if entering Challenge #2 is pushing you too much for time, have a go at Challenge #3.

Thanks for coming by.
