To start this card I pulled out all the colours of ink that came to hand, which ended up being Almond, Charcoal, Desert Rose, and Sage. Then I pulled out the cardstock too.
My son asked me to make a card for his physics teacher who is going on long service leave so he needed a card TOMORROW...luckily I needed to create some artwork for Colour Dare Design Team. I remembered I had an old stamp set with science stuff on it and I checked my Evernote and it is called Positive Chemistry Everyday Life (B1485). I love having my stamps categorised. I don't have them all in there but its a work in progress.

The physics teacher was the Head of Learning Area (HOLA) for Science so we decided a bit of chemistry on the card would be okay too...
I decided to stamp three beakers in Charcoal Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and then I used the other colours of ink to paint with the Medium Round Waterbrush. To get ink into the lid you press down on the ink while its closed and get some ink in the lid... then use your watercolour brush to pick up the ink and paint it onto the cardstock. I had used Charcoal Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad not a watercolour permanent ink so I knew it might bleed so I was careful and it did bleed a tiny bit. I was okay with that it made it look more watercoloured and kind of chemical look to the beakers... like oooh it might explode at any second that unknown chemical compound :)
Then I matted the white cardstock with charcoal cardstock (dark side) then I matted that with desert rose cardstock.
I used sage and almond ink to random stamp the edge of the white card base and then used 3D foam tape to raise the middle section up. I rotated the cell stamp and stamped on and off the card base to get a more organic look to the random stamping.
I hope you pull out some old stamps once in a while and use with your more modern colours and techniques.
