Inspire Me Monday - Breathe in Life

Hello Power Poppy Fans! Nancy here with this week's edition of Inspire Me Monday. I'm back today with a new coloring video featuring the Breathe In Life Digital Stamp (image also available i the Lavender Clear Stamp Set). Lavender is one of my favorite flowers so I love this image.
Coloring tutorials for metals usually show a straight white line down the center of the object to indicate shine, but I decided that I wanted to make that reflection more fluid so that the can would appear weathered and textured. So I created a shine that zig zags down the center which just felt more realistic than a straight white line. Those flowers are so tiny that I didn't worry about coloring them individually. Instead, I focused on the flower clusters, dotting in color to add some variety to the clusters.

So grab a beverage and get comfortable. It's time to roll the video!

This is just beautiful. I already love lavender so that pulled me in. But your coloring skills are mesmerizing to watch. Thank you for showing how to create a more older tin container. I don't think to do that. 💐
