HELLO friend! Are you ready for another Polka Dot Pals Zachary? This is the one I colored last night in the live session I had in Zoom. My challenge was to color the eye so it was looking up – this was my first attempt and seems to work out. However, I can now “see” some mistakes I made and ways to make it better next time. Sometimes it’s a process and the results are achieved one step at a time. For me, this was step one.
New release today from Whimsy Stamps and my favorite is Polka Dot Pals Zachary, of course! I couldn’t wait to pair him with the Fill a Wagon set to create this scene. At the time of designing these sets, I had no idea that the squirrel would prop up so perfectly on the wagon with Zachary looking perfectly into it’s eyes. That was pure luck but on the other side, I like to make all these sets interchangeable so it didn’t surprise me. (The second squirrel looks cute on Zachary’s head too. Just sayin’!)
Here’s the results of the LIVE coloring session today – I enjoyed coloring the Bee Hive by DoveArt from Whimsy Stamps and then personalizing it with a face from Polka Dot Pals Faces. I also added the crown on the hive and thought that was cute message. Then for the sentiment, I used “bedazzling” from the Fill a Truck set and stamping that to say “bee-dazzling” for the theme.
Today I have something different to share … but kinda the same! For this project, I wanted to combine the Polka Dot Pals Faces and a non-character stamp so I chose the Tall Cactus, both from Whimsy Stamps. I started by inking up the Tall Cactus with brown and green ink; I didn’t ink the center of the pot because that’s where the face was going to go.
School is almost out and I can’t wait for the summer! Here’s a project I did for Kim Styles Cards who was looking for a background to color with Polka Dot Pals Delia from Whimsy Stamps. School reminds me of chalkboards, lots of books and school lockers. Emma did an amazing job with lockers so I chose to go with the chalkboards. (You can see Emma’s sample in the store.) And if you’re looking for one with books, here’s one I did with another school background.
Here’s the result of the first coloring session class that I held today. We knew it was going to be Polka Dot Pals Gemma and that I’d be coloring in eye details but how about that background?! I like to think of it as the end of the world but we can still make it. Check out Gemma’s bravado as she strolls home with her groceries and ready for another day. LOL
