Polka Dot Pals Louisa and Leland from Whimsy Stamps

Looks like it’s time for a ice cold soda together and that’s what these two are doing. This is Polka Dot Pals Louisa and Polka Dot Pals Leland with some of their accessory stamps that I’ve used to create this scene. Read below for more details on how I created this card using these key products:

I’ve colored these two separately (see post HERE and HERE) but have been itching to get them together on the same card. Sue Hastead (see her post HERE) did a magnificent job with the same concept so I was looking for ways to make mine unique. To start with, I used the soda pop cans instead of the shake, the added hair accessories included with Polka Dot Pals Louisa, and then most noticeably, different colors.
The concept I was going for was in a soda shop but at a bar that was facing the window. So I colored the background in blue and then tried to color the sentiment “sweetness” as a neon light. To do that part, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Dandelion yellow. Then I outlined the letter with YG17 and colored the inside part (the part that was stamped yellow) with YG23. Lastly, I gave it an outer glow with YG01 and highlighted the center of the letters with a white gel pen. I don’t think I nailed it but I got the general idea.
The faces on these characters were colored through creative color placement based off of new add-on faces soon to come. Those will be symmetrical so for now you’ll have to ignore the imperfections on these. Really, don’t look! Ah, I think you just looked. Oh well. Hope you enjoyed this project and inspiration. 😀
