Boy Scouts Merit Badge Challenge

Hello Everybody!

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! :)
