Island Hugs & Squishies


Welcome!  Today I have another installment of Swamp Thing & Bigfoot’s “Hello from….” it is a postcard from an island with palm trees.  I used several products including the Layered Palm Tree stencil, the Crafty Post stamp & die set, Unbelievable stamp & die, and the Hugs & Squishies stamp & die.

First I die cut a postcard out of 110lb Neenah solar white cardstock and light blue cardstock.  The card was an A2 sized base made from an acetate sheet (Lawn Fawn).  I die cut the monsters from 110 lb Neenah solar white cardstock and copic colored them Big Foot was colored with Light & Dark Crumb cake (Stampin Up markers) and Swamp Thing & the turtle were colored with YG61 & YG63.

The beach sand was made by using the Layered Palm Tree stencil bottom of one of the stencils and ink blending with distress oxide ink in tea dye. The palm trees were made by ink blending distress ink in mowed lawn for the largest area, distress ink in lucky clover for the middle area and distress ink in pine needles for the smallest area.  The tree trunks were ink blended with distress oxide ink in tea dye and brushed corduroy.


Finally I made masks for the trees and then ink blended the sky with distress oxide ink in speckled blue.  I made some glitter splatters with Inkon3 Liquid Pixie Dust. Thank you for stopping by- wishing you a crafty day! CBK-TS-Aug26-4
