Clean And Simple Coloring with Power Poppy Rose and Chamomile Digital Stamp

Hey folks!

Hey folks! In today's video, we're talking about clean and simple and I'll be coloring the rose from the Power Poppy ROSE AND CHAMOMILE Digital Stamp!

I was looking for an image that would work great to show off the power that clean and simple could have. There are 2 digital images in the Power Poppy ROSE AND CHAMOMILE Set and at some point I will sit down and color the other one, but this rose was spot on for clean and simple.

You can watch the video on how I made my cards HEREYou can also click the thumbnail link below.

I wanted to create something that I could easily frame so I printed the image out on X-Press It BLENDING Card using Adobe PHOTOSHOP, then I trimmed down the full sheet so it will fit in an 8"x8" frame with a 5"x5" mat.

The idea behind clean and simple is too well...keep it clean and simple. So when looking at this rose, I see that it's already illustrated with plenty of interest all by itself. That's a great place to start. While the majority of the flower is a fairly tight bud, it does have a few petals that are blooming out and that adds some visual interest to the image.

The next thing that stands out to me is that this image is illustrated so the flower itself has it's own texture and movement. Look at all of the opportunities to add shading at the tips of those petals. By adding the shading you have instant interest. 

Given the features of this ROSE, all this really needs to round it out and keep it clean and simple is the ink blending. For this I used Distress Ink in PEACOCK FEATHERS and splattered on some Hero Arts White SHIMMER Spray.

As much as I love this ROSE, I'm super in love with the shape of the leaves. Where the rose petals feel smooth and graceful, the leaves are a nice contrast because they are the opposite.

The leaves were also illustrated in a visual triangle so it has a natural flow to the overall design too. Keeping these three things in mind, this is perfect for clean and simple.

That's it!

ALSO! I also have a full length real time video available on PATREON folks! There you can see how I color in this pink rose, but I also share 2 more! A red rose and more of an orangey - peach rose.
