Explosive News Card

As you can see, I am still playing with my new dyes, inks and powders. (See previous posts.)This background paper seemed perfect  for the birthday card I've been planning for my scientist son who owns two lovable striped cats.  I love the expression on the face of the Paper Smooches scientist rubber stamp image.  The Neat and Tangled cat images never fail to make me smile. Do you think the cat on the front of the card fainted because he saw the cat in the flask? I put the explosion sign on a wobble gizmo from Art Impressions so that it vibrates when shaken....hard to capture that in a photo. By using foil on the sign, it flashes and seems more like the words are exploding.  All the other parts are on sticky foam squares, The flask was cut twice....once in green paper and once in clear acetate so when assembled it looks like a glass flask....difficult to see in the photo.
 For the inside of the card, I decided to use some birthday die cut words that I had stored (hoarded) in my box of 'birthday' stuff. Is the other cat dancing ? I think my son will find the humor in this birthday card because he is wacky just like his mom. LOL!

Now that's the perfect background for your mad scientist! Must be fun to see the sign wobble. Your son must have loved his card, so appropriate for him. Great job with those dyes!
