Punch or die cut leaves. A softer green color is better; the next step will add darker tones.
Randomly ink with a darker green. You can also ink your edges. Use a copic to color your stems an even darker green or brown color.
Using a ball tool gently form and roll your leaves on a foam mat. I also gently score some of them down the center.
You're ready to start using them on your project. Tip: If your stems are exceptionally thin, put some glossy accents on the back and let dry. Your stems will still be bendable, but much sturdier.
