Birthday for a Chemist

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to make my son-in-law's birthday card, and yes he is a chemist.

The test tube is actually from a Halloween set, but I thought it was perfect.  Colored the tube with watercolor pencil and clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle.  Added some nerdy glasses with tape on the bridge.  I paired the dotted paper because it reminded me of the bubbles in the test tube and the graph paper because I thought it was appropriate.  The sentiment has stenciled splatters on it, maybe because an experiment went wrong.

Thanks for taking a look!
