Polka Dot Pals Dakota

Hello friends!

Today I am sharing a card I made with Little Miss Muffet Stamps, Polka Dot Pals Dakota.  If you buy this image you get a girl and a boy version.  I used the girl image.


I colored her with copics and colored pencils.  Once again I drew the face.  Love to practice those faces.  I am happy with her eyes this time.  Now I need to learn how to draw different mouths and noses so they don't all look similar.  This image would be great to use as a Thank you for your service, or if you have a little one who loves police you could make a birthday card with it.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!

Hugs and smiles,

Janice

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge #187-Anything Goes ar

 Good morning friends!  Time for a new challenge #187 at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I used Happy Mail, a new release, with Mimi's Ladybugs.  Since there is a little worm inside the mailbox I thought Mimi would be a good choice.  It looks as though she has received a ladybug as her "happy mail".


The images were colored with copics and colored pencils.  I thought the red and white polka dot paper was the perfect choice to complete the look.  Enjoy the day and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

Janice

Several Cards to Share

Hello everyone!

I have several cards to share with you today using Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

This is Polka Dot Pals-Peter colored with color pencils.  To create some depth I added different textures to his clothing.  I made his shirt plaid.  I colored his jeans and erased places that I thought would be worn, the knees and pockets.

This is Jr. Hatter Kit.  She has been colored with copics and color pencils.


This is Polka Dot Pals Mieme.  I drew her face and colored her with copics and color pencils.  I tried to do a finger wave hairstyle. Not too happy with it but I think showing your mistakes is a good thing.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hugs and smiles,

Janice

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge 186 - Anything goes

Hello friends!  Time for another challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Challenge #186-Anything Goes.  For my card today I have used Polka Dot Pals Tabitha.  Once again, I am practicing faces.  I am pretty happy with it, even though the eyes are a bit crooked.  That's okay.  Human faces are not symmetrical either, at least not perfectly.


She has been colored with copics and colored pencils.  I hope you like it.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

Janice

Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing a new image Polka Dot Pals Mieme.  I love the Polka Dot Pals because I like to practice making faces and Barbara the owner of Little Miss Muffet Stamps totally encourages people to give it a try.  If you are not brave enough to try it out with your own drawing she does have a Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces set that you could use instead.  Here is my card.



Polka Dot Pals Mieme, not perfect but that's ok.  So Barbara and I were talking about how difficult it is to critique other peoples work, for fear of hurting feelings.  Barbara coined this acronym, CCAOK, Constructive Criticism is A-OK.  I appreciate constructive criticism, because it helps me grow.  Here is some CCAOK from Barbara about my image.

Barbara Sproatmeyer I love how you're working on the faces and this one really draws my attention. Love it! Are you ready for a little CCOAK? For the bottom line of the eye, I would try using the same color as the skin tone for 3/4 of it. I'm assuming you weren't going for the mascara look. The lighter color will still give you a guide to color with but it won't stand out as much. Here's a picture ...

Barbara Sproatmeyer Yes.... but only if it was received well.

Here is a picture of her with the eyes touched up.  I think she looks much better.  Thank you Barbara.  I will try out your suggestion the next time I color a face. ;)

I hope you feel inspired to take your creativity to another level.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

Janice

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge 185 - Anything goes

Hello friends!  Time for a new challenge #185, Anything Goes from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I have two cards to share with you using the beautiful Stained Glass Sunrise image.


This image is on kraft cardstock, colored with polychromos color pencils.  It's nice but I prefer my copic  markers on white cardstock like the image below.


In my opinion this looks more like a stained glass window.  Which do you prefer?
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

Janice
