August Lesson: Coloring Images with Tiny Details

Even large stamps contain tiny details.

Join Amy for a fun lesson on how to approach coloring images with tiny details. Because frankly, coloring teeny tiny details one-by-one would drive most of us nuts.

Which details are important? What can you simplify? And how can you tell when your detail begins to dominate the image?

To View the Livestream:

On the day of the broadcast, about 5 minutes before broadcast time, go to and log in to your account.

Look in the most recent posts for one called "Livestream: Blackberry Bramble". It contains a link to watch via a new window at Crowdcast.

The live-chat discussion board at Crowdcast is only active during the original broadcast and it may not be available on mobile or tablet formats.

I recommend watching the livestream first rather than trying to color along with the live version because you can't pause the live version. Sit back and enjoy the broadcast first. Color later.

To view the recording:

Go to and log in to your account.

On the left sidebar you will see "Featured Tags". Click "Livestream" to pull up lesson posts. Find parts 1 and 2 of your target lesson and watch using either the Crowdcast link or use the YouTube link. The YouTube version sometimes streams smoother and also has a closed captioning option.

Watch at your convenience, as many times as you'd like.

Remember, the discussion board is no longer active for recordings. Amy does not receive message notifications, so your message is unlikely to be read. Want to comment or ask a question? Start a post on the Patreon "Community" discussion board here.


Digi Stamp Printing Instructions:

The stamp not included in the class pack below. Must be purchased from using the 20% discount listed above.

Instructions for opening and sizing your stamp are linked below.

PAPER: This project uses X-Press It Blending Card for maximum blend-ability on the daffodils.

SIZE: Stamp should be sized so that the entire image measures 6" from the bottom leaf to the top petal

If printing smaller, make note of the druplets (little spheres on the blackberry). The smaller you print, the smaller they get!

This is an excellent image to print larger!

I print at about 30% gray so that the stamp lines disappear as I color. Gray levels vary by printer (and paper brand); please test on scrap paper first!

NOTE: I print the video demonstration copy darker than the version you see in the project sample photos. I'm always balancing my needs- dark enough to see on camera versus light enough to disappear under the markers.


All printables open in a new window tab. If you have a blocker set, this may hamper your ability to open these printables.

Printable Packet:

Note: Patreon fee does not include Power Poppy digital stamp. See above for link to purchase page and 20% discount code.
