For this project, the card layout was inspired by Céline’s latest card that uses Polka Dot Pals Colton. I thought it would be perfect to reverse the colors and make it look like a large art canvas. So I selected the step ladder and started to stamp my painting supplies around it. I created masking sheets for that which I’ll save for future projects.
As an after through I decided I would use the Bold ABC Die set to add a sentiment. I didn’t want it to stand out so I used some of the extra rainbow paper and stacked it over four layers of white letters to raise it up. I took care to position in the top layer so I was cutting roughly the same color as spot it will be resting. I think it worked out. 😉

There were lots of options with the Polka Dot Pals sentiments and I wanted to use some of the “magnificent” rainbow paper so I went simple with this one. There’s that oops – even though I didn’t color I can see I already made a mistake on the first word – next time I’ll do “Sharp” or the complete word “Splendidly” further down.

For this card, I stamped the images in a light color for some no-lines coloring. I stamped the character, face and paint brush from Polka Dot Pals Colton then added the paint cans and sign from Polka Dot Pals Beau. Since the images were stamped in a light color, I didn’t bother to mask anything. After coloring, I fussy cut then popped it onto the card front – which, was super easy to make. This is a Glidden brand paint chip and spans the entire slimline card. On the top, I used the Honeycomb Drips Stencil with blue Tsukineko Memento ink and called it good.

This card was pretty easy to put together. I stamped Polka Dot Pals Vera then decided to add the puppy from Polka Dot Pals Kezia. I thought they made an adorable pair! Then I stamped the sentiment “embrace” from Polka Dot Pals Mason and added the letters “LIFE” from using the Bold ABC Die set. Oh, and all the clovers were added from Polka Dot Pals Vera too. The edges were colored with the Crafting Ink Blending Brushes and two green Ranger Distressed Inks. Lastly I added a bunch of grass to the bottom to help blend in the clovers into the scene and also make it feel like we’re down in the grass with her. Lastly Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops were added to bring in some more blue. I wish I had used a brighter blue but it mostly works so I didn’t fuss with it any more.

Polka Dot Pals Tazanna Star Dreams DCS from Whimsy Stamps

I have another digital scene that I’ve colored and wanted to share. This is Polka Dot Pals Tazanna Star Dreams and I’ve been waiting for the right inspiration… which came in the form of glow-in-the-dark Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops. to Read below for more details on how this card was created using these featured products:

Polka Dot Pals Tazanna Star Dreams
Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops

Whenever I try to color something I like to choose something opposite of what I’ve already colored. Even though this is the first time I’ve colored Polka Dot Pals Tazanna Star Dreams with Copic markers, I had to color it for the store sample which means I could use that as a reference. That means, instead of a desert with mountains in the distance, I went with a large lake surrounded by mountains. I could have gone with farm lands too but that’s what I did yesterday so a lake it was.
Another thing I wanted to do when coloring this was to make the background easier to color. To do this, I ignored the star shapes and worried about coloring those in later on. Now it was just a blue sky to worry about and that was easy enough to blend and color.
I had toyed with the idea of coloring in the stars with a white gel pen then color that over with a yellow Copic marker. However, my eye caught a gimps of the glow-in-the-dark Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops and I knew that was going to be it.
So after the scene was completely colored, I started adding the blue glow-in-the-dark Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops to the background stars. This was easy to do but slow going because I was trying to get the drops into all the little corners of the stars. The smaller ones were the hardest to do so they’re just drops.
Here’s what it looks like with the light out and a little blue light shining which I thought looked really neat. I added yellow glow-in-the-dark drops on the shirt’s stars which is something you don’t really see until the lights are out. It’s a fun surprise.
I liked that the drops matched the colors I used so that in normal light they don’t stand out as much and help to bring Polka Dot Pals Tazanna as the main focus. This was a super fun scene to color and reminds me of the fun summer times.

Polka Dot Pals Mason Rainbow Day DCS from Whimsy Stamps

It’s a new release day at Whimsy Stamps and if you haven’t seen what’s new then head on over because there are two new Polka Dot Pals digital coloring scenes today. Woohoo! I’ve created a second project today to feature both images and this one is Polka Dot Pals Mason Rainbow Day. Read below for more details on how this card was created using these featured products:

Polka Dot Pals Mason Rainbow Day
Wonky Stitched Rectangles

Polka Dot Pals Mason Rainbow Day such a fun scene to color because anything with a rainbow automatically means a cheerful outlook in life. And even though this is a complete digital scene, I can imagine adding even more to it and placing something on the tree stump – a pot of gold, an animal friend or even some cake. LOL
So often when coloring rainbows, I choose to go from red at the top and work down to purple. I even thought about adding extra colors and include the sky on the top and bottom – but maybe another day. But for this project, I wanted to go with something a little different than my norm and I started with red at the bottom and omitting all the purple. When you look at Polka Dot Pals Mason Rainbow Day in the store, you’ll see yet a different style of rainbow and I hope these two examples gives you some coloring ideas.
To finish my project, I used the trusty Wonky Stitched Rectangles to cut out the scene and then mounted it on a white card base. As a last minute thought, I added a honey smelling scratch and sniff sticker and placed that right-dab in the middle of the sun. Yep that should do it. Finished!
