I really enjoy the stackers from Art Impressions and was happy to be able to get this Duck Stackers or ordered from Amazon last week. So I set off to use it right away and paired it with the fence from Polka Dot Pals Fern in the background. I originally was going to do a rainbow scheme but then decided I would do a rainbow of actual duck colors. After some Google research, this is what I ended up with.
I’ve been collecting a match boxes and specifically like to look for vintage or unique ones at antique stores or flea markets. There are not very many but occasionally I’ll spot one for a good price. I even found a small vintage pill box that I’m excited to use one day. I would like to create small scenes in them like a world of their own but I’m afraid I’d ruin them in the process. So I decided to buy some to practice with and spotted this interesting brand on Amazon: Swedish Three Stars Safety Matches.
I’ve had my eye on this cutie for a while and was thrilled to be able to color her up. This is Wyanet (Beautiful) from Whimsy Stamps and in the background is Path in the Woods, also by Whimsy Stamps. I thought with her sitting on the cliff ledge she would be perfect to look over all of the forest.
Ready for another Polka Dot Pals scene? This one is using Polka Dot Pals Imogen as the center piece and colored on Neenah Desert Storm paper with Copic markers. I’m really enjoying this look so I’ll be doing a lot more. Plus I might look into other colors – do you know of any to recommend?
For this project, my daughter rolled the dice and selected a stamp an older stamp from the shelves. Literally, we have two dice that help us pick from my stash and use some of my old favorites. This one is Dare to Dream by Whiff of Joy.
Here are the supplies used on my card:

Move over Chef, there’s a new Count in town! Here’s another example of Extreme Creative Color Placement on Polka Dot Pals Harley and this time he’s come out as Count von Count. “I am the Count. They call me the Count because I love to count things”
This was a challenge to color a Polka Dot Pals character as a Muppet – HERE is the Swedish Chef and Jennifer colored Animal HERE. We used Polka Dot Pals Harley on all these modifications.
Polka Dot Pals Harley is a hardcore character and also one that has many faces, literally! This is a challenge I did with Jennifer Dove to color a Muppets character using Polka Dot Pals Harley clear stamp. She went with Animal and I chose the Swedish Chef. This is considered extreme creative color placement.

This was another coloring session with my 2nd daughter and she decided to make a bookmark with this Elisabeth Bell stamp, Beary Big Hugs. Mine is on the left and hers is on the right. She was working on blending with the Copic markers and I think she did an awesome job!
These are the Copic colors I used: BV23, N0, 2, 3, 5 E30, 31, 35, 37 BG11, 72, C5 E40, 41 E000, 30, 31, R12 YR30, 31, 23, 24, Y21 RV11, R32, 43
