..... Good morning! I hope you all had a good weekend. I've had a very good time - more of that later. I've a card to share with you now - it's been made with a couple of challenges in mind:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Love Potion; There She Goes Stamps - Chemistry
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder, Peach Parfait; Memento - London Fog, Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Pinking Circles Sm (S4-172) #2; Die-namics - Fishtail Flags Layers Stax #2; PTI - Love Potion
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Grey, Wisteria Wonder; Sakura Stardust Pen; SU Marker - Wisteria Wonder; Clear Embossing Powder; Copics - V25, YR20, G21
I struggled a bit with these colours, but while going through my stamps yesterday I came across the Love Potion set which I got as I just LURVE chemistry!! Transition chemistry is one of my favourite areas, partly because transition elements give solutions (see the picture below) with the most fabulous range of colours - hence this card!! I die cut and stamped the various containers and mounted them onto some dark grey spiky circles, on the last circle I stamped a "molecule" and embossed it with clear powder. I finished the front with the sentiment stamped and embossed on vellum and a tiny flask which I attached with dimensional tape. The inside has a mat layer of dark grey, a group of glassware and a simple sentiment. Obviously this is the perfect card to send to me!!! However, I think it's likely to be slipped into Jonathan's bag at some point.
The image below shows a selection of solutions made from different transition elements - such pretty colours!
So, as I said, the weekend was lots of fun! I spent most of Saturday in my craft room - you've seen the firework card - and the rest of the time I was sorting and tidying! I can even see the floor in places :) Saturday evening we all headed to the cinema to see Ender's Game. I'm not going to give away any spoilers, just to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Kathryn really liked the film too and even plans on reading the book!! Yesterday Jonathan was out at a photo shoot, Kathryn was listening to her music and I did more tidying - I really should sort out catalogue pages as soon as I get new stamps!! Would be so much easier.
That's all for now - I'm determined to finish sorting out my craft room! See you soon.
Deborah this card is perfect for you , with your love of chemistry. Love all the bottles and potions! Sounds like a busy weekend.

What a great card - I don't think I've seen that stamp set before...looks like the Colour Q combo was the perfect palette for you this week!
Such a brilliant card Deborah - and I know your love of chemistry! (thanks for the info about transition chemistry - who knew?!) And thanks too for the Ender's Game info - I now have a date for the weekend! Did you see Harrison Ford on Graham Norton with Benedict Cumberbatch and the fab Jack Whitehall? It was brilliant!
