For this project, I’ve mashed up a Polka Dot Pal with a DoveArt stamp and created this scene. These combination is always fun to work on and they make great scenes. This one features
The Mailbox in the background and Polka Dot Pals Mason as the character. I’d swoon too if someone put a friendly note in my mailbox with flowers. Sigh
The red and yellow flowers are colored like Indian Blankets which are pentifiul this season around Texas. I think the yellow tips are stunning and pulls this flower over from the weed category into the desirable category. I’m so glad there are fields and fields of these to enjoy.
The character is Polka Dot Pals Mason and I’ve added elements from the Polka Dot Pals Fern set – her glasses and the sentiment. On the glasses, and the center of the flowers, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to give it a little more texture and shine. It’s a subtle effect but looks great when see in real life.
The background was stamped in green and brown ink. To do this, I inked up the entire stamp in green then dabbed the brown in sections such as the mailbox and the house. I didn’t worry about getting some on the green trees/grassy area and thought that would add extra dimension when I colored it. The character was stamped in black.
