Polka Dot Pals Lisa

I rummaged around in my old stamped and pulled out Polka Dot Pals Lisa to color. This is a retired rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. She’s one of my favorites and is signing “Thank you” in American Sign Language (ASL).

The background is a die from Gina K, I think. Long ago when I organized, I erroneously didn’t label my dies so they’re hard to identify. So this is just my best guest. The sentiment is a Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment and was colored with Copic markers and Stickles Glittler Glue.
Instead of using an add-on face from a Polka Dot Pals set, I decided to color in one of my own and try a new shape. This is how I come up with faces to add into new Polka Dot Pals sets. So if you see one that you love, hint, hint, then give me a shout out.
Here’s a progress photo. The only paper I had at the time was heavy, maybe 120# weight, and I thought it was for alcohol markers. Boy was I wrong! I don’t what know what it was but even colored pencils didn’t apply well. So this was a difficult and patience testing project. I wasn’t able to go as dark as I wanted but at least I was still able to get some shading and depth included.

Forest Friends Rosa

This is a blast from the past as my daughter and I color up Rosa the Rattlesnake from a retired set named Forest Friends Stuart & Rosa from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. We colored this one in Prismacolor Pencils and decided to color on dark blue paper to create a night sky scene. She also decided we should color a Scarlet Kingsnake instead of a rattler.

This was great time together and little did she know how much she was going to learn. We broke it up into three coloring sessions – the snake and snake texture, the ground and grass and finally the moon, stars and highlights.
This is Cassandra’s project – you can even see some scales texture added to the snake. I would show her the basic technique then she would color her own. She did a great job and I love how they both turned out!

Supplies Used:
Prismacolor Pencils

Polka Dot Pals Joshua

There’s a fun new release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and you can see more inspiration on the LMMS Challenge blog.  For my project I’ve merged a scene using the Polka Dot Pals Joshua series release which includes all the following digital stamps:

I used my Prismacolor Pencils and colored on a taupe or krafty color. I actually don’t know what color it is but I thought it would work well with a desert theme. Then I colored the sky mostly blues and greys so I’m glad I had a little bit of the taupe color showing. 

Swings ‘n Slides Winner

You’re a winner!  I’ve used Swings ‘n Slides Winner from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and created a fun card with carnival paper. I colored the hat to match the papers then added some color through the clothes and bear. These are fun stamps to color for me because I end up using brighter colors than I normally do… and it’s a cheery change.  Hope you enjoy it!
