Polka Dot Pals Louisa

This is sweetness! At least for Louisa it is. For this project, I’ve used the stamp set Polka Dot Pals Louisa and the coordinating accessory stamps to create this scene. If you want to know about my errors, then don’t miss out on the YoutTube video where Amelia is all too eager to point them out. And read below to know a few of the details on how I created this scene.

The Polka Dot Pals Louisa set comes the sentiment and coordinating stamps that I used to create this scene. I stamped the character and milk shake first to mask them off then stamped the table, stool, soda and sentiment. I added the bottom portion of the table and the tile flooring using a ruler. Then I also added the mirror behind the soda bottles the same way. The face came from the Polka Dot Pals Mason set
I wasn’t sure how I wanted to color the character yet so I worked on the background first. I especially wanted to color the soda pop because the colors I used there would be important to my color choices for the girl.
In the end, I chose yellow, brown and dark brown. The yellow was so that she would stand out more and tie in with the sentiment; the brown was to coordinate with the cola and root beer flavors, and the dark brown was to also help her stand out more. If I was to do it again, I would have saved the sentiment for last and also done that in a chocolate color. Perhaps a neon-light would have been a good challenge!
The card was finished by using the Card Builder Windows Die. I outside part was used with 1/8″ foam tape and I thought that made it feel like looking through a window. Then the inside was placed directly on the card base. Lastly, I reached for my white pen to add some highlights and sparkle.
