Video: Creative Coloring with Erum: Adding Details to Die-Cuts

by Erum Tasneem

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.

Altenew Peony Blossom Dies | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0So, I cut a bunch of die-cuts for one flower out of Solar White Cardstock. And I used the Artist Markers in Shades of Purple to color the petals starting with Midnight Violet Artist Marker.

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.

Hi Erum – thanks so much for the tip! How beautiful is this card? Love your colour choices and the pop of black and white stripes on the side just makes the flowers stand out even more. You never disappoint.
