Mad Male Room Science


     Our new challenge at The Male Room is science, so anything masculine with a scientific theme would be perfect, cards, layouts or mixed media.
      I found this little scientist as a free digi so I printed him on white card and coloured him in with Graph-It markers. I have added Glossy Accents to his glasses and the flask in his hand. I tried another version with coloured hair but it didn't look right so this gentleman's hair stays white.
     With a white gel pen I wrote two chemical formulae on a rectangle of black card, then using Distress Ink Picket Fence I smudged over the card to make it look like chalk residue. This is stuck flat on to the Kraft car blank with the scientist fussy cut and mounted on foam pads in front of it.
     The greeting is a series of chemical symbols on small white squares used to spell Best Wishes, I tried Happy Birthday but it was very long and didn't look as good.
     It's been an education making this card, something I shall do again I think, chemistry wasn't one of my best subjects at school but it has been fascinating revisiting the subject.
     Come and join us at The Male Room with your masculine science projects, we have lots of inspiration on the blog to help get you started.
