Polka Dot Pals Lirienne

This is Polka Dot Pals Lirienne from Little Miss Muffet Stamps that I used for an eye and face tutorial (a bonus below).  It was fun to use these colors and I'm always a sucker for images with books.  This has been one of my favorites for a while and I had a hard time waiting to post it.  So I hope you enjoy it too!

Come enter in one of your projects into the Anything Goes challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Any stamp, any theme, any project!




Here are the two step-by-step tutorials I did with this image.  The first was how to color the eyes.  I basically follow these few steps anytime but just change the colors a little. Lots of times I wait until the whole face is done before doing the eye.  This helps for when I've chosen colors that were too light.  When that happens, then I make it darker at the top otherwise I think she's a bit too wide-eyed. 


Here's the other step-by-step that shows how I build the face.  I only use a couple colors but layer it on while blending and blending.  Hope it helps.  If you are looking for something in between a blank face and this, check out the Polka Dot Pals Add-On Faces, available in both digital and rubber.

    1. Somehow I deleted my comment! This card is just gorgeous. I'll never be able to achieve this quality of coloring but am going to give it a try since you've posted how you did it. This is the best face and eyes I've ever seen!
