Shading Die Cut Flowers with Alcohol Markers


Shading Die Cut Flowers with Alcohol Markers

Hello, fellow card makers and happy Monday!! I hope you’re had a wonderful weekend!!

I have a card to share with you featuring the latest Harvest Blessings Release from Scrappy Tails Crafts!! This release is full of so much autumn and Halloween goodness, but personally, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Layering Sunflower Dies!!



I love coloring die-cuts!! It adds so much interest and dimension to them. I die-cut the Layering Sunflower Dies from yellow, brown and green cardstock. For the sunflower petal layers, I cut the top layer twice for each sunflower. I added dimension with Copic markers and some detail to the flower centers with a yellow gel pen. Then, I adhered the flowers together with liquid adhesive, being sure to rotate the top two layers in different directions.



I trimmed a piece of deep red polka-dot patterned paper from the Harvest Blessings Paper Pad slightly smaller than A2 and adhered it onto an ivory card base. The sunflowers and leaves were arranged and adhered with liquid glue.



The sentiment, is from the Wild Sunflowers Stamp Set. I stamped it onto yellow card stock with Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink and cut it out with its' Coordinating Die. I popped it up with foam adhesive and this card was finished!!



I love the way this turned out!! Have you ever colored your die-cuts to add dimension? If so, what is your favorite medium to use?

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Enjoy the rest of your Monday and I’ll see you soon!!
