Polka Dot Pals Raden

March is an awesome month but it’s also awesome because there is a new release at Whimsy Stamps featuring two new Polka Dot Pal boy characters! For my sample today, I used Polka Dot Pals Raden, with a few elements from Polka Dot Pals Imogen, and Path in The Woods for the background.

I first colored the Path in the Woods so I could see how much green I could use on the rest of the image and not be too washed out. I settled for adding just a little green on the shirt to help harmonize the two images together.
The Path in the Woods by Dustin Pike is going to be an awesome stamp to use for many themes. Even though it took a while to color it with the dots method, I can’t wait to use it again.
I had tried to add Nivo Crystal Drops to the glasses but was a bit shy about how much I added so it didn’t go on as smooth as I had liked. Then I tried to speed up the drying time with the heat gun – and well, let’s say you don’t want to do that either unless you want a bubbled look. I smoothed it out as much as possible and that was that. Lesson learned.
Here you can see a side by side of the coloring on Polka Dot Pals Raden before and after. I added the glasses from the Polka Dot Pals Fern stamp. Then I colored in my own face without using an Add-on Face from another set.
The fallen tree log in this set has four different options for how you want the end of the stump to look like. I chose to go with the eyes and make the log hollowed out – who know what critters are lurking in there but I think Polka Dot Pals Raden is about to find out.
