Well, crap. I've been screwing cards up left and right. Smudging, over-inking, going the complete wrong direction. This is no exception. But it's the concept that counts, right? !
A friend bought this stamp for me... she's a science nerd also... so I embossed it and doodled some chemical bubbles with an embossing pen, then mixed pewter and black embossing powders. Thennnnn... I had the bright idea of daubing the empty corners with Tim Holtz's daubers in Bundled Sage... too pale. So I added a dauber of Black Soot. Oh no. The slippery slope. So I tried to add glitter. Wiped that off. Freaking added Stickles in Black Diamond. Done.
