Papertrey Ink is having an Anniversary contest today. Our challenge is to create a project with leaves and butterflies. It is also Make it Monday so I decided to combine the two.
I must admit that I have had coasters sitting in a drawer since I purchased them. I just never think to pull them out but I will be using them more now! They cut easily and work well as a focal point. I can't wait to get my hands on the new release butterfly dies. Oh the possibilities are endless!
In the video, Jenn used and brayer and reinkers with water to add color to her embossed coaster but I didn't have a either of those handy so I turned to a tool that I love. It is called RolTap by Clearsnap.
To use it, you just tap the wheel in your desired color and roll it on! By layering with different colors you can create unique effects. I used SU Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron.
The leaves were stamped with PTI Turning a New Leaf in SU Mellow Moss. I just stamped off to get the lighter shades. On the inside, I stamped the largest leaf and a sentiment from PTI With Sympathy.
