Tutorial: How to Add Color with Markers to Intricate Die-cuts

Hi, everyone! Teri here today with a quick tutorial showing you another way to use your markers. Instead of using your markers to color in stamped images, use them to add color to your die-cuts! Check out this card.

A handmade stamped card by Teri for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com

Here's how I made the accents for this card.

Step 1: Start by cutting a couple flowers from white cardstock. For this project I used the Fresh Cut Flowers crafting dies.

How to Add Color with Markers to Die-cuts Tutorial || TechniqueTuesday.com

Step 2: These dies have some small pieces that might fall out when you cut them. To keep them together, I placed a little washi tape (or two-way tape) on the back of the die-cuts and set the small pieces over the tape. This will help keep those small pieces in place!

How to Add Color with Markers to Die-cuts Tutorial || TechniqueTuesday.com

Step 3: Now it's nearly time for the fun stuff... we get to color. But, first, a word about markers. There are lots of markers out there that will work for this technique. You don't have to have the latest and greatest. You just have to have some markers you are comfortable using. I personally find the brush and bullet tip style ones are my favorite for this technique simply because sometimes I want to add color in really small spots on my die-cuts.

Take your markers and slowly apply a little color to your die cut pieces. Keep going until your die-cuts are covered with color.

Step 4: You might have some spots where you accidently got marker color onto your die-cuts where you didn't want any color. An easy way to fix that is by taking a white pen and simply applying some ink over the stray color.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial. Be sure to check out Technique Tuesday's Stand-Alone dies! We have lots of dies that will work wonderfully with this technique.
