Grungeboard Leaf Pin


Not a great picture, I'll have to try to get a better one but wanted to share anyway. This leaf is cut from grungeboard, veins pressed in using a stylus and also my bone folder, and then it's painted with acrylic paints, let it dry and sprayed it with a sealer. Punched a small hole in it and added a bead along with a bead cap to simulate an acorn. This came out so awesome... it actually looks like it could be leather. My friend, Michelle, had actually seen something similar made from leather and wanted to try to make one like it... the grungeboard was perfect to use.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Your work with the Studio 490 stamps is fantastic. I love your leaf pin and the creation posted below. You will totally enjoy your time with Wendy when you take her workshop next year.

This is really pretty, Wanda. Did you use a die to cut it, or is it one of Wendy's stamps?

Hello Wanda,

it doesn't only looks like leather, it looks like a REAL one, just fallen from the tree, wet and shiny from the rain...
