Ionic bond

Using Ionic Bond from Unity Stamp Company, I saw this nuclear symbol and imediately thought of the show the Big Bang Theory. I love that show and Sheldon with is selfish narcissistic personality just makes me laugh!! It is funny how they can use such big words and make silly jokes.

The color theme at Unity Stamp Company Blog is blues and purples.

I used Try Stamping on Tuesdays sketch

Crafty Gals Corner has a sweetheart theme and you need to use a heart. I created the background using the dipping technique with Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord DI. Then, I have never opened my Pearl Ex, and used translucent violet to create a shine. Well, I wanted more shimmer...this is an electrostatic attraction we are talking about. I ran my Versa Mark pad on the card leaving spaces that would be dull and shiny when embossed with clear embossing powder.

I created the background by stamping "Our Ionic Bond" many times. Then I paper pieced by adding the hearts that were punched out of the background paper to the spaces between the background stamping. I also added three of them to the nuclear symbol. My scrap box held the paper for the card and colors for the banners and backing of the nuclear symbol.

Simon Says Wednesday challenge has It's a guy thing and I think this would be a perfect valentine for the guy.

613 Avenue Create's has a use as many techniques on a card as possible challenge

Well, I think an Ionic Bond has been formed.
