Polka Dot Pals Imogen from Whimsy Stamps

Here’s a familiar scene but now it’s been filled with curiosity and good friends. This was my original aspiration for the Garden Door stamps but the background turned out so well that I had to show it off individually before continuing. Now Polka Dot Pals Imogen has arrived. Read below for more details on how this card was created using these featured products:

The background is the Garden Door stamp and you can see what it looked like before our friends arrive. Click on this link HERE to see that. I then proceeded to color the character stamps, Polka Dot Pals Imogen, and all her insect friends to fill out the scene.
I colored Polka Dot Pals Imogen in purple and blues because I wanted to pull the colors from the wisteria flowers and the sky beyond to help round out the focal point. Plus it helps to make her stand out more among all the other colors.
The extra stamps were cut out and instead of leaving a white border around the edges, I used the lighter colors from the background and colored that part. Before the white stood out too much and was distracting. Now it looks more like she is part of the scene and that they were meant to be together. Polka Dot Pals Imogen comes with the sentiment “BONHOMIE” which means “cheerful friendliness; geniality” and would be a great sentiment to add to the inside.
