  1. I've never done this before, but I think I may try now. I know I need lots of help with my coloring sometimes as I don't get the shading very good at all. This project is lovely!

  3. I haven't tried this technique but I love the look you get with it - I need all the help I can get with coloring/shading so this might be a fun way to get 'forgiving' results. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

  6. No. I have not used this technique for coloring a card. But, I'm headed to my craft room right now to give it a try. Would live some Power Poppy stamps, they are definitely on my wishlist.

  7. Hi, I have tried Pointillism but not on the whole image, just around an image as a shadow. I will definitely it tho! Thanks for the tutorial.

  9. I have tried the texture technique that you shared at Power Poppy. I did not have colourless refill, but scribbled ink on an acrylic block and pressed a small pice of screen onto it and then placed it on my background. It gave a muted result, but it worked. Now to by some liqiud refill! ;0)

  10. Okay, I apparently don't read directions very well as I commented on a different technique in the previous post! I have done pointillism before but not on a card or with copics. Will definitely try it out. As an avid gardener, I am a bit gaga over the Power Poppy stamps. Thank you for the opportunity to enter for the give away!

  12. I was first introduced to this technique when following the Flourishes blog. I did try it several times, but I mostly used it to outline an image. I will give this a try now. Thanks for a chance to win,

  15. No, I have never done this before but it is now on my "to do" list. Love how this card turned out. I also have never used a digital image but sure love the Power Poppy images.

  16. Hi Ally, WOW, this technique is gorgeous. To be honest, I have not heard of it before now, and I really would like to try. Your coloring is beautiful and I thank you for showing us how. I also have not tried digi images yet...as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I haven't had a chance yet to try. I will now though. Thanks for the chance to win. I will now follow your blog so I can learn more.! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!

  18. Love you tutorial Ally! I've only ever used pointillism around the edge of my images but now you've inspired me to colour my whole image that way! Looks fantastic - thanks for sharing and thanks for the chance to win! Elizabeth

  19. Great tutorial, Ally. Love your technique in the Power Poppy image. I have used pointillism once on a card for a Flourishes challenge but I'm not very good at the technique. Your tutorial has inspired me to try again.

  20. Oh my goodness... your flowers are beautiful!!! No I have not tried your technique as of yet, but rewatching your video on how to do it, I am definitely going to give it a try!! Thank you so much for inspiring me and giving me hope that I might be able to color beautiful flowers. I am crossing my fingers. LOL!

  22. I've used this idea for backgrounds in the past but never for coloring an image. You make it look so fabulous and so easy.

  23. I just watched your video and loved it and am sorry to say I haven't tried Pointillism, but am inspired to give it a try. Loved both your examples, the traditional and the "speedy" one. What a unique and pretty look and your card using this technique is gorgeous.

    I follow your blog all the time and have tried some of your techniques. Your work is amazing. Thanks for sharing your creations and knowledge.

  27. I just bought my first stamp from you and can hardly wait for it to arrive. I love the tut on the pretty little tags. Then splitcoast had this great tut and I knew once I saw this digi stamp that I had to have it so that I can try this.
    Thanks for a chance to win some stamps and now I have to go get the digi image, so I cna practice this one!!!!!!

  29. Hi Ally, I had never seen "pointillism" before (yes, I've seen it used but didn't know what it was)...thanks for the tutorial...I'll have to try it. I love coloring so it's right up my alley.
