Semi-Blended Coloring on Dahlias | Creative Coloring with Erum (with Video Tutorial!)

by Erum Tasneem

Hi there! Erum here with a new project and video for the Creative Coloring with Erum video series.

Today, I will use Artist Alcohol Markers to color Build-A-Garden: Dear Dahlias Outline Stamp Set with little to no blending required. So all you need to do today is add color and fill in those white spaces!


  1. Use a stamp positioner and stamp the image from Build-A-Garden: Dear Dahlias Outline Stamp Set in Fuchsia Crisp Dye Ink on a panel of Classic Crest Solar White. (You can also stamp in Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink to avoid restamping.)
  2. To color the pink flowers, use Rubellite and Pinkalicious Artist Alcohol Markers.
  3. To color the purple flowers, use Andromeda, Hydrangea, and Wisteria Artist Alcohol Markers.
  4. To color the yellow flowers, use Honey Drizzle and Fresh Lemon Artist Alcohol Markers.
  5. To color the leaves, use Teal Cave, Aqualicious, and Dew Drops Artist Alcohol Markers.
  6. Place it in the stamp positioner and stamp the image again in Obsidian Pigment Ink.coloring
  7. Use the coordinating die to die cut the image.
  8. On a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Navy Cardstock, apply splatters of Sterling Silver and Aquamarine watercolors from the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set.
  9. Adhere the image with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
  10. Stamp a sentiment on white cardstock in Obsidian Pigment Ink, cut to size, and adhere to the card front with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
  11. To finish, adhere gems.

Just beautiful Erum. You making flicking look simple. I’m a terrible flicker but I’ll give this a try.
