Hello friends! Erum here today with an easy card with the Dancing Sunflowers Stamp Set. I will use alcohol markers to color the image, and I am sharing a super simple tutorial so you can get familiar with how the Artist Alcohol Markers work.
Coloring the Sunflower
- Use a stamp positioner to stamp one of the sunflowers from the Dancing Sunflowers Stamp Seet onto Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock (80lb) in Sunray Crisp Dye Ink. (You can also directly stamp the image in Permanent Black Ink.)
- Start coloring the flower petals in Honey Drizzle and Fresh Lemon Artist Alcohol Markers. Apply the Honey Drizzle closer to the flower center and areas where you want to show shadow. Add Fresh Lemon to the remaining area.
- Cover the base with Vanilla Cream Artist Marker pigment to color the flower center. Next, add dots of Milk Chocolate, Hazelnut, and Almond Butter Artist Alcohol Markers. Make sure to form a “C” shape with the darkest marker to create a dome-like effect.
- To color, the leaves, use Milk Chocolate, Hazelnut, and Vanilla Cream Artist Alcohol Markers.
- Once done, place the panel in the stamp positioner and stamp the image again in Obsidian Pigment Ink.
- Use the coordinating die to die cut the image.
- Apply black paint splatters on a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ cream-colored cardstock and set aside to dry.
- Adhere the panel to the card base and adhere the image with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
- To finish, adhere Satin Gold Sequins to the card.

Here is one more card I created using the Dancing Flowers Coloring Stencils. Here, I changed the background and used Navy Cardstock to create a more dramatic look. I also used selective ink blending and shading techniques to create depth.
Changing the color of the leaves, swapping the background, and making changes to the layout can allow you to use the same stamp in multiple ways.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and the extra inspiration. Please let me know if you want me to use a particular product in upcoming videos or feature a technique. See you soon!
