... I've made this card for the Colour Q challenge - cQc92. Their colours this week are orange, turquoise, green, black and white - and the inspiration picture is of a really retro looking clock. When I saw the picture it reminded me of the molecular models I made while studying my chemistry course. So this was an easy card to make.
Now, I have to apologise to any other chemistry bods out there - I've hand drawn "actual" molecules - but the colours representing the atoms aren't right!! I know - it bothers me too, but this is craft!! :) And I had such fun with the card. The little "atoms" were stamped with a tiny berry from one of my Waltzingmouse sets - see very versatile!! I stamped the chemistry glassware and coloured the image with Promarkers - matched as closely as possible to the Stampin' Up! colours. I know this is a strange sort of card, but it makes me happy!

These stamps are made by There She Goes, an American company, and I can't remember where I first saw them - but I knew I had to have them. I have several friends who studied chemistry with me and we're all nerdy enough to really appreciate cards made with the stamps:) To be fair the stamps make great Valentine/love type cards - check out the gallery over at There She Goes - see here.
Scouts was really good fun - we didn't have many kids turn up - but those that did had fun cooking - and then eating!! Now, it's really late - or early, depending on how you think of it - and it's time for me to head off to bed. I'll be back in the morning to check in with some of my favourite challenges - Less is More and Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. See you soon.
