Use a Leaf Die in Multiple Ways

 Hello friends!

I am sharing a GREEN project with you. This time, I am using Leafy Sprigs Etched Dies.

There are many ways of using leaf dies like this. I started out spraying (Distress Oxide spray) on watercolor paper. Let dry and then die cut. This is the reason why I love buying distress Oxide Sprays. A little spritz of colors and you can die cut any way you like it!

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰With the negative die (yes, those negative part--don't throw it away just yet!!), I positioned it in place and started stenciling leaves in the background.

You can use shades of colors (such as green) to help define the depth of your background.

Before adhering the leaves onto the card front, I added lots of splatter. Once I positioned the leaves in place, I added sequins.

I like your use of oxide sprays to color the paper before die cutting these leaves.
