P is for Pharmacist

Hello.  Welcome.  Last year I was doing the Craft Barn Alpha Dictionary challenge using giant playing cards.  I completed the challenge, in that I made a card with a letter for each fortnightly challenge, but I didn't manage to make two every challenge, which was what I hoped to do to complete the pack.  So a few of these will be popping up now and again.  Here's my second offering for P.  It was going to be poison, but that definition was split in my dictionary so I had a scout through and settled on pharmacist.  

I've used Sizzix embossing folder and blue metal sheet for the background.  The lady is a Lynne Perrelli stamp, stamped on white card, embossed with blue embossing powder and fussy cut.  The bottles on the shelf are a NBUS stamp from DRS called Magic Potion Shelf.  I stamped and embossed with silver embossing powder.  I coloured the bottles with various blue distress inks well diluted with water.  When they were dry I fussy cut them and added glossy accents.  Love the detail on this stamp.  The bottles all have quaint labels with strange contents written on them that are legible despite the embossing powder.  Definition from OED.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
