Default How would you make copper skeleton leaves!

I found some copper skeleton leaves over the weekend at The Container Store. Way cool!

I didn't buy them because I thought, "Hey, I can make those. I already have a ton of leaves." But, now I am asking how. What would you do? Could you use Heat and Stick and then Pearl Ex? How about copper spray paint. Maybe it would just be easier to buy them, what do you think stampers?

I haven't tried it but how about a brayer with the copper encore ink? Let us know what works!
Happy stamping!

If you are talking about already owning the plain vanilla colored skeleton leaves & wanting to change the color, you just take our copper ink & brayer it on. Let it dry awhile. I've done a lot of gold & silver ones, but not copper. That would be gorgeous.

However, if you are talking about real leaves from your yard....I don't know how to make them look like copper skeleton leaves.

Yep, I'm talking about the plain Skeleton leaves (not the ones in my yard that I still need to rake up.)

I never thought about using the copper ink pad with the brayer. Super easy. Thanks!!
