Pretty Cute Stamps January Blog Hop!

Hi my stamping friends!  Welcome to Pretty Cute Stamps January Blog Hop!  If you came here from the Pretty Cute Stamps blog, then you are in the right place :)  If you would like to go back and start from the beginning, click here.
I have a card to share with you today that I made with the brand new Mad Scientist set which is currently on sale over at Pretty Cute Stamps.
 A while back I learned how to do the "chalkboard technique" and it worked perfectly to create the chalkboard for my card.  I wonder what magic potion he is creating here, a love potion perhaps??
For this technique, you simply stamp your images and heat emboss with white embossing powder.  Give that a few seconds to set and then using your finger, rub a little white pigment ink across the paper.  It gives it that chalk eraser effect across the board.  Did you ever have to clean the chalkboard at school?

I stamped the Mad Scientist and colored him with my Spectrum alcohol markers.  A little liquid glass was added to the lenses of his glasses for that realistic look.  I cut him out and popped him onto the card with some popdots.

I finished off the inside of the card with another image from the set and the sentiment.

Here is the whole Mad Scientist set...
