Hi there everyone!
Today I will be using the Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom Coordinating Dies for my project. I have colored die-cuts before with watercolors and also with Artist Markers. But today I will be adding detailing to the die-cuts like I do with stamps.
The notches on the Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom are already there as guides for where to add shadows. This is where I will add the darkest color, Midnight Violet. Then I blended it out with Deep Iris Artist Marker, extending the lines…moving towards the flower center.
For the flower center, I used the colors from Summer Afternoon Artist Markers. For the leaves, I used the Green Fields Artist Markers. I started with the darkest color Evergreen, adding it to the notches, building the veins and midrib with a very light hand and then blended it out with Forest Glades Artist Marker which I will further blend with Frayed Leaf Artist Marker.
I also altered the Mandala Die to add as an accent when arranging the floral dies.
You can watch the video below or on YouTube to find out how I colored the die-cuts.
