I used my Altenew alcohol markers to color the image. Just 2 shades for red (velvet and crismon) and 2 shades for green (bamboo and forest glades). Then I used my prismacolor pencils to deepen up the shadows and a white pastel pencil to add some highlights.

Make sure to check out the video above for a step by step tutorial on coloring everything.

    Your puppies that you stamp on this card are amazing. I love your choice of the background color. I really think it makes the poppy stand out even more. Thank you for my smile.
