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 is a new release at Whimsy Stamps for this month and she is named Polka Dot Pals Khadija. I added the face that was included and used the wings and fireflies together to create this little scene. In addition to using those elements from the set, I added pointy ears through creative color placement and made her more fairy like.
Here’s another version of Polka Dot Pals Imogen clear clear stamped inside the Mason Jar rubber stamp, both available at Whimsy Stamps. This time I went with pink fairy dust in the snow globe and also added some extra features. Can you spot them without me pointing them out?
It’s a new release at Whimsy Stamps and I’ve created a card using the new Galaxy Galore Background along with the Bundled Up stamp in the foreground. There are loads of other inspiration from the Whimsy DT this week.
I started with embossing the background in white then used my sponge to ink on the blue and faded it towards the bottom. For the girl, I colored her with markers first and then used the pencils to create the knitting. I’ll be forever grateful to Annabel for enlightening my world with this texture. I love it!
I have a Christmas project this week using Reindeer Kitty from Whimsy Stamps. I wanted to work on fur texture so I pulled up some pictures of cats and settled on a common tabby. I started with the lightest color and worked towards the dark. Then without blending, I tried to pull in some of the lighter colors where it was needed.
Here are the Copic markers I used on Reindeer Kitty:
For my project, I’ve used Fantail Goldfish a DoveArt for Whimsy Stamps rubber stamp. I wanted to try something different and stumbled across Nicoletta‘s amazing water project. She was following a tutorial on the Copic Italia blog and I knew that was something I should try. So this is my first attempt on the Faintail Goldfish. It was about step three that I decided I didn’t like it, however, I pushed through to finish so I could learn from my mistakes. I think the next time will be a little easier.

My project was inspired again by Annabel and her awesome knitting pattern which I colored again on this Moose. This is Merry Moose-mas from Whimsy Stamps. I colored the scarf and hat originally in Copic markers but wasn’t able to get the details I was looking for. So I then went over it with Prismascolor pencils and brought back in the details.

I thought this little fairy would be perfect as a little bee so I dug out my yellow and black papers from the back and colored her up. This is Flower Fairy from Whimsy Stamps and I also used the Card Builders Window Die set from Whimsy Stamps too. I colored her outfit first and wasn’t sure where to go with the hair color but thought a little green with be refreshing.

It’s release week at Whimsy Stamps and I have some new products to show off. For my project I’ve used Emma and Aime as well as the new Card Builder Windows die released this month too. I fussy cut around the image and used just one of the fairy girls.
