Come fly with me - CSI - Fancy Pants (Be You)

I am playing along with the CSI (Color, Story, Inspiration)  I find the challenges they post inspiring and totally addictive.  In the process I get to use up some old stash so it is a win-win situation.  For this challenge I used a photo that was taken when we went on the Ziplines at Tsitsikamma Falls.

 Supplies used:  Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Fancy Pants (Be You);  Clouds, hotair balloon and title: Silhouette Cameo; Border punch:  Martha Stewart; Rubon:  Kaisercraft/Fancy Pants; Flowers: Prima; Dangle:  Tim Holtz;  Other:  PanPastels, Shimmerz Tidy Widy Texturez; Gelatos.

Here is the CSI case file: 

Some close ups:
I shaded a white cardstock with blue and yellow PanPastels and then sprayed artist fixative over it.  When it was dry I added some Shimmerz Tidy Widy Texturez through the Crafters Workshop "Tiles" stencil.  I cut the hot air balloon,title and clouds with the Silhouette Cameo.

I cut the triangles into the background piece and backed it with the 5 different colours of the challenge.

I used the little airplane clip that I received as a gift from my friend Cat

I used a Kaisercraft quote rub on for my journalling. The little Birdie rub on is by Fancy Pants (Be You)

So this is how I solved this case.  I used all 5 colors. Evidence: Airplane clip, dangle, mixed media background (white cardstock shaded with PanPastels and then used Texture Paste on the edges),triangles. Testiminoy: I used the Come fly with me title, and the "daring" quote.
