Background - Inked Leaf Technique

 
 
Hi Everyone!!
 
Here is the promised Background Technique photo tutorial.
 
1. Gather together desired leaves from the garden and your selected ink pads and baby wipes.
 
 
 
 
 
2.  Ink up your under side of your leaves, generally the under side is more textural and makes for a better print.
 

 
 

 
3. Gently place the leaves in the desired position and using your baby wipe inked with a lighter colour ( I used green distress ink) gently press and wipe over the top of the leaves. You'll get a gorgeous print of the leaf and bonus background colour as well.

 
4. Here is the finished result.


 
 
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
