Male Room - Geek in all of us!

Male Room - Geek in all of us!

My husband really is a Sci-fi Geek!
Especially Star Trek.

When I saw the Male Room was having a Sci-Fi Challenge, 
I knew exactly what I wanted.
A FULL card for his birthday!

Can you guess whose uniform this is supposed to be?

This is SUPER easy to recreate.
I drew a sketch and used 5.5 and 4.25 piece of Dark Red Cardstock, and Black.
Mirror like silver sheet I clipped off a few pieces 
large enough for the oval and the inner emblem.
I cut at them until it looked right.
I colored the oval carefully with YR24Pale Sepia, 
you don't want to touch copic
on a shiny surface until it is completely dry.
I popped both up on double sided foam tape and adhered all.
Feel free to use my design, 
Perfect for the geekster trekkie, 
Like mine!





Okay, for those that haven't guessed, 
this is 
Jean-Luc Picard's uniform 
from Star Trek Next Generation.




This took only 14 minutes to make!
 Jean-Luc does not really say live long and prosper, 
but hey, you gotta for a birthday card quote Spock!







Ok, and here is my sketch, poor quality, but you get the idea!
Feel free to use this and make your own Trek-Geek Card!

I made another one for some close friends having their Anniversary this weekend!

Notice on theirs I added some dressed up brads!!!
Elegant PTI Wet Paint Set for the Envelope!!!

OMG what an absolutely brilliant card for any Trekkie (like myself!) This rocks the challenge in so many ways, not least its originality. Your husband must have been thrilled with it, I would have been! Thanks for playing along with our Sci-Fi challenge at The Male Room. Live Long and Prosper!
