Teen Genius

I just can't seem to get my Craft Loft into shape.  I can now see the floor for the first time in years.  Trouble is - I can't see any of the countertops!  
I may have too much stuff!    Shhhhh!    I'll pretend I didn't actually say that out loud!  

That said, I do really love my card today.  It turned out exactly as I had planned it in my head.
I enjoyed using some of my stencils and inks to create this fun birthday card for a much loved science guy. My Glossy Accents feature on his goggles, flasks, test tube and bubbles too. The elements from the periodic table are all relevant to the card.  Their atomic numbers represent the recipient's birthdate and age. 

We are around midway in our 
"Anything Goes theme with a Mo Manning image" at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge.   I have used one of Mo's images called Teen Genius.  There is a straight haired girl version of this stamp and also curly haired versions of both a boy and a girl, all available from Mo's Digital Pencil.   And check out Mo's other sites where there is lots of inspiration from my teamies.
* Dream Team Blog HERE for inspiration
* Mo's Facebook Clubhouse HERE, and
* Mo's "Patreon" Page HERE 

I had this cute little Lawn Fawn science set in my stash with the perfect conical flask stamp so I stamped the envelope and added what I think is a Gina K sentiment to the front too.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Polkadoodles #15 and We Love to Create Mixed Media #4 - both "Anything Goes"

Simon Says - Monday "Bright Cheerful Colours" 

CD Sunday Plus - #58 "Anything Digital Goes"; and
Dare 2B Artzy -  "Bright Colours"; and
Passion for Markers #588 "Add a heart" (It's on the envelope in case you can't see it)

Wow, this is so clever! Love the inky background you've created and your colours look great together. Love how you've added elements from the periodic table that represent the age and birthdate too - absolutely perfect for a scientist!! Thanks so much for sharing at Passion for Markers this week. Hugs, Karen x

How brilliant is this Lesley! I don't know what kind of chemical reaction this young man has cooked up but he's looking quite pleased with himself! Perfect colours and colouring - I love it! Vicky x

This is such a clever card and it's clear how much you enjoyed putting it together.

I sympathise with you, I too am trying to sort out my craft room and also have way too much stash!
