This is my second post today. If you are looking for the NEW Catch the Bug HUMOR ME WEDNESDAY post, please scroll down one! :0)
I've been really busy cleaning and organizing my craft room over the past month; it sure seems like a never-ending thing, doesn't it?! I really want to streamline my "Stuff", making it quicker and easier to find. It's all in the hopes that I will become inspired to use it! lol!
While I was cleaning, I came across some cute, science-y paper that I had in my stash. One of my favorite Tiddly Inks images is the Genius image, and I had finally spent some money purchasing it a month ago, but had yet to use it! I knew that the paper would be a great background for him, so I printed two of him out, colored him up,
and put two cards together.
I think we can all agree that making masculine Valentine cards can sometimes be a challenge, so I decided to use this adorable image to create two non-traditional Valentine cards: one for my son, and one for my hubby. :0) While I made these specifically for their Valentine cards, they could also be used as Birthday cards. :0)
Here's the first one, a horizontal A2 card:

I colored him with my Prismacolor pencils. The embellishments are all svg's I made. I added some Stickles to the beakers and test tube to emulate a liquid, but I didn't want it to stand out to much, so I used some Rock Candy and Diamond instead of a color.
The little microscope is layered, and then I did some fine line work with a marker.
The inside of this card reads, "...to know you mean the world to me". :0)
Here's my second card, a vertical A2:

This one uses some different embellishes than the first, but they are also svg files I made.
The outside of both cards read the same, but the inside of this one is different: it reads, "to know you'll always be my #1 son!". My son is my only child, and it's a little joke we have had between us since he was small. He even had a baseball hat when he was a baby that said, "#1 Son" on the front. Haha! Nineteen years later, and I still use the saying with him. lol!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you've enjoyed your visit!
