I personally have never tried this particular lollipop, so don't know much about the taste but I do recognise the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory illusion. Loved that book and the little grandies love the DVD.
I started by thinking of all the various Nerds I knew or knew about and came to the conclusion that without Nerds, many of the luxuries in my life would not exist! Then as a retired teacher of secondary students I am aware that many Nerds were subjected to bullying and scorn from their more 'trendy' peers! The fact that most Nerds are earning much more and living a much better life than their contemporaries gives me some slight satisfaction now!
It started with me getting messy with Distress inks of various ilks, masking and a bit of trial and error work. Then I laid down the first coat of colour, and polished it off. I drew around it with a black pen - used some new masks to get a busy sort of background going, and then stamped a few things. The sentiment is from SU and the main image is a foam stamp from La Blanche. It is actually quite sharp.
I then just layered up with a Tim Holtz die cut, some bling, butterflies and the conversation die cut on which I wrote the only formula that has stayed in my brain! Hope its correct! There is a connection with the butterfly (flight) and the plane (flight) - nearly added a balloon too but couldn't find one that matched the colours! The glasses are doll glasses (or for teddy bears) and have been in the stash for a loooooonnnnnngggg time (at least three years)!
I will enter this in the following challenges:
Oldie but a Goodie: Bright colours - and my oldie is the glasses!
