Leaf Art Trading Cards

I went back to my favorite markers today, Sharpie brush, for my ATC class. Those brush tips just make for the best coloring!
1. Coated paper works great with the Sharpie markers. If you don't have access to any, try fingerpainting paper like this Strathmore type. Cut paper to 3.5" x 2.5" size. Draw outline of leaf with a black Sharpie marker.
2. Fill in the leaves with Sharpie brush markers. Color the background with a contrasting color.
3. Use a metallic markers like this Sharpie set to draw highlight colors on each card.
Note: I promise this post is not brought to you by Sharpie, they just happen to make markers that color really well.
