It's Yarr Birthday

Today I am sharing another requested birthday card. For this themed card I had to call a friend as I have a limited supply of  pirate themed stamps., luckily my friend has a few more. I also had a chance to play with her Misti, I always wondered how her images were dark and define and wondered if she had special ink. Now I know her secret, the Misti allows you to re-ink and stamp the image several times always in the place, to add several layers of ink. 
Here is a u-tube video on how to use a misti, it was so much fun so it is now on the top of my Christmas wish list.
Okay so now on to the card, on the front I have the parrot and sentiment die cut with spellbinders dies, sponged in the shadow while the dies was in place then I matted it in black.

Because I made a pop up card I had to cover up the holes left from die cut pop pieces, with red card I then used the Agatha edges for some shape.
I used the lots of pops die designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth craft design for the inside and added 5 separate stamped images to create a scene. And added the flourish from the Agatha edges set.

The lots of pops die is able to cut 5 different levels of pops, because I had a large image I wanted to pop I kept the large panel to pop and folded in the others into the background.

Another shot at a different angle.

Elizabeth craft designs - Lots of pops, Agatha edges
spellbinders -  circles, speech bubble
Stamps - La la land Luka, Paper Pretties - parrot and various other stamps.
Copic pens, foam tape and glue.

Thanks Frances for the images, I hope you like how it turned out.
