Polka Dot Pals Lottie

This is Polka Dot Pals Lottie from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and is one of my favorites from this season!  Partly because this was the stamp that I had made for the coloring retreat when we all got together in March - best weekend eva!  The other part is because she is so fun to color - just look at all that hair - what a dream.  :D

This is the second card that I created for the classes I taught at Scrapping Goodtime in June (which now I'm thinking it was in May?!)  But never the less, we were working on light source and breaking down the image into sections so we could focus on where the light part should be and where the darker part should be.  I always think it's easier to work on light source with monochromatic colors so transposing the same concepts to colors always takes our brains for a ride.  In addition, I tend to keep my colors lighter and so the effect is more subtle. 

This coloring along was done using the Marvy Le Plume markers and the card layout was kept simple so we could focus more on the coloring part rather than the card making part.  (Which I think is the better portion anyway.  LOL)  The weekend was great and full of other coloring too - so stay tuned and watch for more inspiration to pop up!  *Hugs


  1. Beautiful coloring, I can't believe you got that level of highlights with Marvy's, impressive!
