..... Just before I went on holiday, at the end of July (where is the time going?), Susan (Simplicity) announced the addition of two new designers to the OLW challenge DT - Karen Dunbrook and Ardyth Percy-Robbs and for various reasons I've not been able to join in with the challenges for ages!! However, I am fixing that today.
The host of this week's OLW - OLW102 is Ardyth at MASKerade. Ardyth's challenge is "While we're on the subject" - she wants us to make a one layer card with a school flavour but based on our favourite subject. Such fun!!! My favourite subject at school was science - in pretty much all its flavours - chemistry, biology and physics (a bit). Here are my cards - yes, I made four!!! They are all tiny cards - the rectangular ones are 7½ x 10½ cm (2 7/8" x 4 1/8") and the square ones are 7½ x 7½ (3" x 3") - approximately.
Stamps: There She Goes - Chemistry, Chem 101, Cutie Pi
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Promarkers - lots; Card from stash
These were really easy to make - I simply stamped the images directly on to the cards and then coloured with Promarkers. The first one I made is the last card shown - a play on the diagram of an atom - hence the sentiment. Then I saw the little cutie pi stamp and, as my husband is a total maths nerd, I had to use it too - and his favourite colour is green! Now, my very favourite science subject is chemistry and I just love the scientist image, and a fun sentiment to match. I finished off with the rack of test tubes and these colourful solutions! Chemicals really do come in a huge range of bright colours:
I took this photo at an Open University Transition Chemistry Summer school in July 2006. It was such a fun week and I learnt a lot too! These containers hold samples of all the chemicals we made that week.
That's all for today. After an absolutely beautiful weekend weather wise, I've woken to rain and grey skies. Still warm! My job today is to do the ironing - I've managed to put it off since we got back, but it has to be done today! See you soon.
