Polka Dot Pals Raden from Whimsy Stamps

The DigiMojo Winter Wonderland 12 Days Event has been in motion and I’m thrilled to take part to bring you a fun challenge, inspiration and prizes too. It’s DAY 6 and Whimsy Stamps is graciously donating our featured digital stamp to three lucky participants by commenting in the DigiMojo Facebook group on each of our projects – Annabel, Jennifer and myself have selected three different Polka Dot Pals digital coloring scenes for our projects. We’re giving away our cards too – leave a comment on each of our blogs for a chance to win those happy mail parcels!

The challenge? Use any Whimsy Stamps’ non-winter image and convert it into winter! Extra kudos for using a Polka Dot Pals digital coloring scene. 😀 (Don’t have any Whimsy Stamps yet? Check out the freebies section.) Whimsy Stamps is also giving away a $15.00 gift certificate to the random winner of the challenge. The challenge closes on December 13 and cards must be posted in the DigiMojo facebook group.

Read below for some details on how I colored Polka Dot Pals Raden River Exploring.

Can you take a summer scene and convert it into winter? Challenge accepted! For this challenge I used the digital Polka Dot Pals Raden River Exploring scene. The first thing I need to consider is the color pallet – using cool colors represents a winter climate so I chose blue, teal and purple as the main colors. Secondly, I printed the color in a light gray so I could color over the line, such as the grass tufts, and not worry about about keeping that exact shape and converting it to clumps of snow instead. After the image was colored, the last thing I added was snowflakes…. lots of snow. I think these three tips will help convert any non-winter themed image into a winter one. Good luck!
