This week's challenge at For Fun Challenges is Boy Scouts because February 8th is Boy Scout Day. Now I will be honest-I don't know that much about boy or girl scouts (I wasn't a girl scout as a kid). But after looking at this site here I am in awe of what Boy Scouts need to learn to earn badges. Take a look (especially if you aren't familiar with the program like me). Wow! All different areas of expertise!
So for my project I made 3 ATC's. The merit badges I covered are: hiking, nuclear science, and robotics.
Here are close ups of each card:
For the background on this ATC I used Dylusion Sprays and stickers. Below is a close up of the park map sticker. After I made this I realized that there was a separate badge for backpacking. So I was more careful with the next two! ;)
This ATC background comes for a chemistry book page (195 to be exact) ;) A while back I picked up a chemistry book for free. And now I was able to use it! Yay! I adhered the piece of the text book page to the ATC base and I used red and yellow distress inks around the edges. Nuclear is from the book also and the letters are Authentique. The black circles at the bottom are Prima rub-ons.
And this is the Robotics ATC card. Here I used Tim Holtz gears from the Sizzix die and the robot and sentiment are from The Alley Way Stamps. I used silver embossing powder on the robot and perfect pearls.
I put some perfect pearls on the sentiment too.
I hope that you will play along too! There are lots of badges to choose from-so let your creativity run wild!
Until next time my friends...have a fantastic day! :)
