Porcelain Paper Leaf Pin

I took my leaf stamp and colored it with three diferent markers.

After I colored the stamp, I sprayed it with water.

I stamped it 3 times on cream colored cardstock.

I colored the leaves in with my prisma colored pencils.

I cut the leaves out.

I glued the leaves one on top of eachother.

I put a layer of tacky glue over the top of the top leaf.

I smeared the glue around using my finger.

When the glue was dry I glued a pin to the back.

Last step was to put a coat of clear fingernail polish over the leaf
to make it shiny.
