Hello Savages! Today I have a quick and easy tutorial to share on how to make your leaf dies 3-dimensional.

You can use any leafy vine you like. For this tut. I use the (spoiler alert) August Die of the month, Spellbinders Romantic Vines. If your perma you should be getting your die really soon! If not, check out the boutique on reveal day, August 25th.

Step 1:
Cut out your dies using a thick white cardstock.

Step 2:
When coloring white cardstock I always like to use a light mist to get a variegated look.

Step 3:
Mist with a green shade.

Step 4:
As you can see I used Heidi Swapp Mist and Silks Paints. I used the paint on just the tips of the leaves along with some hand tinted glitter glass.
Close up of the details

Step 5:
When the vine are partly dry use a paint brush and wrap the tips around. You can also pinch and roll.
Also lift the swirls

When they are completely dry it will hold the shape.
Hope you can put this tutorial in use on your next project!
