The highest form of research is essentially play

Sharing a fun card made for a nephew’s birthday featuring Science from Polkadoodles.

To make up my card I’ve used the sketch at Sunday Stamps for my layout.  Instead of the large rectangle I coloured up an explosion shape with my Copics then spritzed the whole thing with some Perfect Pearls Mist.  Because of how I created this I couldn’t layer the thin strip under but had to place it on top.  I created my sentiment on the computer and printed it to look like it was written on a blackboard.  I chose my font to look like the whole thing is a rather long formula to match my scientist image.

My image was water coloured and, apart from the glasses, looks like my nephew who does love to play with science kits and concoct things.  As this is going out to my nephew (male and a child) I am linking up my card at both the Allsorts masculine and Fab’n’Funky for a child challenges.
