Talk With The Animals

I love using copper embossing powder especially with animal stamps. Just had to ink up this giraffe for a card. Stamped and embossed sentiment and giraffe on a glossy oyster pearl CS. This worked well because ink does not dry well on this paper. Used EF and got the effect that the giraffe is feeding in the leaves. Had to maneuver EF in different angles to get this effect without embossing the giraffe.. I used a pod to add ink to highlight the raised surface. Used heat to dry. Attached to a mat of Copper Metallic CS (make a note to me to find more) and wrapped around some twine.  Adhered to a base of green textured CS. Easy and quick card.
This will make a great card for a man.
