video tutorial

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

close-up photos

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.

    I love watching you color . I use colored pencils and your coloring with markers has let me use the same techniques in my colored pencil class. Red poppies are one of my favorite flowers and you seemed to bring them to life. Thanks for the great videos!

    What a beautiful poppy! Love to watch you color with Altenew
    Artist Markers. The velvet and crimson are two of the prettiest Altenew reds. The colored pencil shadows add such a lovely touch to your beautiful flowers.

    I often feel challenged to make flowers look realistic and love your suggestion of using both alcohol markers and colored pencils to get those little extra highlights and contrasts. Thanks for a great video!

    Absolutely gorgeous card, and I love how you stamped it twice to make it look like two different stamps because of the change in orientation. I love all the little details you have added, and I love the card as a whole. Just gorgeous.

    Vicky, such a wonderful use of the gorgeous Altenew poppy stamp. And thanks for leaving in your “goof”. I’m always getting just a drop of something left from my hands. Some of these mistakes require creativity and lead to improvements too.

    Such a lovely card Vicky! Your red poppy flowers are just gorgeous with the blue blended sky (loved that new ink color for this). I enjoyed your video very much and how you showed us to cover up a tiny boo boo.
