Polka Dot Pals Tazanna Star Dreams DCS from Whimsy Stamps

I have another digital scene that I’ve colored and wanted to share. This is Polka Dot Pals Tazanna Star Dreams and I’ve been waiting for the right inspiration… which came in the form of glow-in-the-dark Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops. to Read below for more details on how this card was created using these featured products:

Whenever I try to color something I like to choose something opposite of what I’ve already colored. Even though this is the first time I’ve colored Polka Dot Pals Tazanna Star Dreams with Copic markers, I had to color it for the store sample which means I could use that as a reference. That means, instead of a desert with mountains in the distance, I went with a large lake surrounded by mountains. I could have gone with farm lands too but that’s what I did yesterday so a lake it was.
Another thing I wanted to do when coloring this was to make the background easier to color. To do this, I ignored the star shapes and worried about coloring those in later on. Now it was just a blue sky to worry about and that was easy enough to blend and color.
I had toyed with the idea of coloring in the stars with a white gel pen then color that over with a yellow Copic marker. However, my eye caught a gimps of the glow-in-the-dark Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops and I knew that was going to be it.
So after the scene was completely colored, I started adding the blue glow-in-the-dark Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops to the background stars. This was easy to do but slow going because I was trying to get the drops into all the little corners of the stars. The smaller ones were the hardest to do so they’re just drops.
Here’s what it looks like with the light out and a little blue light shining which I thought looked really neat. I added yellow glow-in-the-dark drops on the shirt’s stars which is something you don’t really see until the lights are out. It’s a fun surprise.
I liked that the drops matched the colors I used so that in normal light they don’t stand out as much and help to bring Polka Dot Pals Tazanna as the main focus. This was a super fun scene to color and reminds me of the fun summer times.
