TMR - Theme ....

.... Morning! I'm here today with a couple of cards for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#48. For the next couple of weeks we want to see your masculine projects with a SCIENCE theme. How you interpret science is up to you - you can pick a specific area, you can concentrate on scientists or discoveries. I made a couple of fun cards:

Stamps: MFT - Undeniable Chemistry
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake; Versamark
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Crumb Cake; Clear Embossing Powder



I used the sketch from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#197 challenge. The colours are from CAS-ual Fridays Challenge - CFC#160 and the theme of encouragement is from Just Us Girls - JUGS#368. I cut a panel of kraft card for the top of the card and randomly stamped "atomic" structures in different colour inks. I stamped the sentiment at an angle and embossed it with clear powder. On the inside I cut a mat layer of kraft card and added a few images to the white panel. This card will go in my stash - it's just the sort of card I'll send to Ben.

I was having so much fun playing with my various science/chemistry stamps sets that I made another card:

Stamps: MFT - Undeniable Chemistry; Sweet Stamp Shop - Elements
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Versamark
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Concord Crush; Zig Brushes; Wink of Stella - Clear; Gold Washi Tape; Gold and Clear Embossing Powder


I've used the colours from Less is More - LIM#301 - gold and purple - for this card, and I think this works for CASology - CAS#223 where the cue word is TEAM. I stamped the sentiment first in black and heat embossed it with clear powder. I repeated the sentiment and embossed the word chemistry in gold. I stamped the cute glassware image, heat embossed with clear powder and coloured it with Zig brushes. I added some sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I attached a strip of gold glitter washi tape to the card and then adhered the panel on top. On the inside I cut a mat layer of purple card and on the white panel added a sentiment and another image, heat embossed with clear powder and added a touch of colour too.

I may end up making some more "science/chemistry" themed cards for my stash - they satisfy my inner nerd!! Do visit our blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team - as always they are fantastic. You've got lots of time to play along with the challenge - deadline for submission is midnight GMT Tuesday 22nd November (that's 7.00pm EST). Bye for now!
