Inspire Me Monday: Colouring Juicy Strawberries

Hello my lovely Power Poppy peeps!  It's Inspire Me Monday and I, Allison Cope, will be your hostess today!

Today I thought I would share with you how I coloured the strawberries for a card I posted a little ways back using the fabulous "Juicy Strawberries" digital stamp.
I had a lot of questions about what colours I had used and what I had done to create such a realistic berry.

So I thought today I would share my colouring process of this beautiful digital stamp and just how I got it to look the way it does!

Grab something delicious to drink and join me in my scrappy room today...

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and give this technique a try for your next berry-lious creation. Don't forget to give it a try with our luscious raspberry image, "Berry It", too! 

Happy colouring everyone!

Ally ~

I can't decide what I like more... your suggestion to apply "juiciness" to the berry with your deep-colored Copics, your tips about using the Gelly Roll pens to add luscious highlights and reflections, or YOUR ACCENT!! Such a winner — this is a must-watch. Thank you SO MUCH, Ally!

Fabulous Ally. I never thought of the little indents around the seeds and highlights. Beautiful effect.
