More Flowers

Ever since I saw this Power Poppy digital image, I've wanted it.  I finally broke down and got it the other day because in my mind I could color this just as pretty or even prettier than I'd seen others do.  In my mind........  As you can see I'm still a work in progress on the coloring.   I feel like I need to make the darker colors darker and the lighter colors, lighter.   I have a hard time with all that shading stuff.   I still like it but will keep on practicing.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts and then I added some crystals from Studio Katia.  The paper is unknown and extremely old.

Thanks for stopping by.............and have a great weekend.

This is beautiful, Lynn. I don't do shading well so I use the black lines on the stamp to darken and shade. Some markers are so dark I don't use them. Guess I like the softer colors better so these look perfect to me. I like the pattern paper too.

You are doing great on your coloring, Lynn! Practice, practice, practice makes us more comfortable. Love these tulips! You colored it beautifully!

It's a lovely image, and I think your coloring looks just fine. I have the same problem with not getting the shading dark enough. But I think this bouquet looks like a breath of spring, and you have enough shading in it to suit my eyes! Sometimes I'll look at an image I've colored and next day maybe decide to add a little more darkness. Sometimes I like it fine, as it is. This is pretty and you did great! TFS & Hugs
