Cute Chemists

I am a guest designer for Words 2 Craft By this month.
It is a wonderful challenge blog where each month they have a quote for inspiration.

This month's quote is The influence of a good teacher can never be erased
and it is so true.

I used a fabulous MFT set called Cute Chemists with a much-loved but retired CC Designs sentiment to make a card for my daughter's Chemistry teacher.

I coloured the teacher with copics and I love how she turned out!
Then I created a background using beaker stamps from the set.  I stamped them onto kraft card with versamark and then coloured some of them in with coloured pencils.  I've never tried a background like this before but I think it looks really effective.
I stamped the sentiment onto black card with versamark and embossed with white to create a blackboard. I added a few touches with white pencil and cut out a little piece of white card for the chalk too.
Then I cut a frame out of some pink wood paper from Doodlebug Designs.
The kraft square and blackboard frame were cut with dies from CC Designs.

Copics used ;

B 93, 95, 97
RV 00, 02, 17, 25, 55, 63
R 20, 22, 30
W 00, 1, 3, 5, 7
E 000, 00, 13, 21, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47, 53
