Polka Dot Pals Harley

New releases are at Whimsy Stamps for the month of March and this is one of them – Polka Dot Pals Harley. I created this scene using a few of the other Polka Dot Pals sets as well: Polka Dot Pals Fern, Polka Dot Pals Imogen and Polka Dot Pals Syeda. It’s just so fun to mix and match these sets and I often have them all out on the coloring desk for me to use.

So which sets did all the elements come from? Polka Dot Pals Harley and the frog are the main characters. Then I used the fence from Polka Dot Pals Fern and nestled Harley in-between the two fence posts. From Polka Dot Pals Imogen, I used the mushroom stamp. Then the clouds and hay straw are from Polka Dot Pals Syeda. For this scene, I colored my own face and then added the freckles from Polka Dot Pals Fern.
This scene was actually created by my youngest daughter who wanted to color along with me. This is her coloring and I think she did a great job. But most importantly, we had fun together.
I like to show the before and after coloring, especially of the faces, to show how much character can be added. Harley started out with two dots for eyes and a strand of straw.
Here’s a close up of his face. I wanted to go for a crooked smirk so it looked like he was smiling but also chomping down on that strand of straw so it wouldn’t slip out of his mouth.
