Polka Dot Pals Khadija

I’ve grabbed a handful of the Polka Dot Pals sets to create this scene featuring Polka Dot Pals Khadija. I’ve actually used six different Polka Dot Pals set! They’re all listed at the bottom of this post.

Two videos were recorded showing how I colored the hair and the face – one is posted to my YouTube channel and the other on the Whimsy Stamps channel. Hope you’ll come view them both.

Coloring a Polka Dot Pals Face

This project was colored on Neenah Desert Storm paper. I love the look and it’s so fun to color on. You’ll see in the videos, that the ink is much darker when it’s wet and first applied. It takes a short bit to dry so that’s something to get used to.
The hair on this character is a short pixie style but I’ve colored it with thick twisted locs instead. Changing the looks like this is called creative color placement, which is a technique that can be done on any stamp and in any spot. It’s even easier to do when stamping or printing the image in a light color. Here, I used a light gray ink.
I have all the Polka Dot Pal sets, of course, which makes it a lot of fun to mix and match all the elements. I usually mask the character but when stamping in such a light color, I don’t bother to mask any of the other stamps. After coloring, it’s difficult to see the lines that should have been omitted and make building the scene that much easier.
