Hi, crafty friends! There’s a new stamp out from Streamside Studios. It’s a fun palm tree with some crazy looking coconuts. There’s also a few puns included, which makes creating funny cards sooo easy.
The stamp is called Coco Loco, the name’s even funny. And also very fitting. I printed it near the bottom left of my panel of X-Press It blending card and printed my sentiment near the top right corner.
I did some very simple Copic coloring of the palm tree, the beach and also colored a pale blue halo around it to give the illusion of some sort of sky around it. I prefer the look of this light blue on the outside of the actual image instead of the bright white of the paper, I think it looks more finished this way.
I used the largest die in the A2 Stitched Rectangles STAX 1 die set from My Favorite Things to trim down my panel slightly and add faux stitching around the edge, before I adhered it to a card base I created from New Leaf cardstock from Papertrey Ink.
I added some brown enamel dots from Papirdesign near the sentiment and also a couple near the image itself to embellish a tiny bit. I love enamel dots!
To enhance the nuttiness of this image, I colored the cheeks pink and added Glossy Accents to what was already crazy looking eyes for a bit of extra fun.
Simple image equals simple color palette.
