Best Mates

Ahoy Matey! How about a post with a splendid little pirate theme :) .... featuring Pink Poison's brand new set, Best Mates!! I had SO much fun with this set. For this card, I stamped the image with Brilliance Graphite ink, sprinkled on some Clear Embossing Powder and hit it with the heat gun. Then I pulled out the Copics for a little color, a few Spica glitter pens for some sparkle...then I used a little Caramel latte Fun Flock to make those monkeys a soft and furry. Aren't those monkeys just adorable? I love that the little guy on the right is munchin' down some pizza ! You can see a few of those details here ~Have you tried Fun Flock? I used to think it would be hard to use or messy... but it's super easy to use, and less messy than glitter. You just add a little glue (I use a Quickie Glue pen because it has a nice fine tip for fine detail), then sprinkle on the Fun Flock, tap off the excess and you're done. It's just that easy. And, it stays right where you put it. As the name implies...it's fun stuff :) . And here's a look inside ~Every pirate needs a little treasure, so here are a couple gold & silver coins! Better yet, they're CHOCOLATE :) ...now that's a real treasure!!! Fun to look at and yummy to eat!
And last, but not least, here's a card I made earlier in the week. No coloring on this card, just black embossed images on matte Kraft cardstock.. A double layer of black scallops and paper piercing add dimension to the card. You can double click on the photo to see a few of those embossed details a littler closer (if you're interested)...
And the inside ~
