metallic botanical prints

Latest project: metallic botanical prints. I sanded down some frames to give them a more beat-up, rustic feel and then printed out 4 coordinating leaf designs on the computer. You could just as easily use wrapping paper, greeting cards, or scrapbook paper. Next, I took a leaf and colored it with a metallic sharpie. While the leaf was still wet I pressed it onto the print. You're left with a nice metallic leaf stamp. I overlapped a few and used several different metallics. The result is super cute and it couldn't be easier.

Here are the before frames.

Here's the after. Metallic botanical prints.

  1. It's so cool that you used real leaves! I never would have thought of that. :)
