Happy Camper...

Hello crafty friends!

I'm super excited to be joining Whimsy Stamps as a guest designer this month! I've been a long time fan of so many of their various stamp collections and I'm happy to be joining the fun with them once again. This month Whimsy released two new Polka Dot Pals and I chose to ink up Harley for my card today. One of the great things about the Polka Dot Pals is that they are sort of blank canvas when it comes to their faces and you are encouraged to either use the additional facial feature stamps that come with some of them or add in your own features as you color to make them your own. I took that idea a step further and did a bit of gender bending as I turned mine into a female Harley complete with a flirty pixie cut... because girls like getting out in nature too. Which leads me to other great thing about these stamps, each set comes with a lot of great background builder images that are awesome for creating scenes on their own but really take off once you have a few sets to mix and match together. That cool tree stump, babbling brook and little frog all come with Harley and help tell her story for me. The rest of the background I sketched in myself as she enjoys a quiet moment in her sunny meadow. 

Well that's it from me today, I will be back next Thursday with more Polka Dot Pal fun to share!
