I found some new stamps last week - Perfect Chemistry by Your Next Stamp - and, as a chemistry nerd, I just had to have them! I love the way they used the symbols for copper and tellurium to create the word "cute". I stamped it in Versamark and embossed with copper (what else?) powder. I stamped my 'mad scientist' on some white card, coloured him with Copic markers, cut him out and edged him with a black marker. The flask he's holding contains copper sulphate solution - which, when dilute, is a really pretty turquoise solution. I adhered him flat to the card on top of the word. I added a fun sentiment and finished the front with a hand drawn border - in copper!! On the inside I cut a mat layer of copper card and added a fun sentiment. I've just found a, new to me, challenge - City Crafter Challenge Blog - CCCB#281 where the theme is GEEK CHIC, so I'm going to play along there too.
I think I'm going to have a quiet day today. Jonathan isn't feeling at all well - he's running a temperature and has flu, and he's gone back to bed to try and sleep. Kat is doing her homework. So I'm on my own and will spend the rest of the day crafting too! See you tomorrow!
