soliva.....You can stamp on the die cuts with a color ink, color the edges with ink, chalk or water color. You can even run the die cuts through with an embossing folder to give them texture.

I like to layer several of them on top of one another in different shades of the same color or even complimentary colors. Perhaps adding foam dots between the layers to give it dimension. Gently bend the edges to also give the petals dimension.

I'm not sure you're looking for a realistic flower, but just to use the die cuts as texture and depth to your project instead. You are not going to achieve the same look as if you were to stamp and color the entire flower in with pencil or markers.
