Hello Tombow fans! This is Jennie. To celebrate Earth Day I’m going to share a leaf stamping tutorial using the Tombow Dual Brush Pens. It’s so easy you can even teach this technique to kids! Stay until the end of the post to save a free wallpaper.
What you need:
Gather leaves with a smooth surface. Choose different sizes and shapes.
Scribble on a leaf using Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Make sure you color the veins and textured parts. You can use more than one colors on a leaf. Make sure you put it on a piece of scratch paper or cardboard to go around the edges and protect the surface.
Spray water using the Tombow Spray Mister. Another thing you could do is use a glimmer mist. Use a light color or just a little shine.
Stamp the leaves on the paper. Press all the parts of the leaf.
Voilá! Leaf stamping won’t be perfect but the beauty of nature relies on imperfection.
Stamp different leaves. You can overlap them but not too much or you could lose the leaf shapes.
I finished this piece with the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen Hard Tip. Here I used brown tones but you can also use red, orange or green for leaf stamping.

I added leaves to make it more artsy. You can use a similar technique to create your own wallpapers too! Click this photo to save this image!
This is how it looks on my iPhone. I tried it with my husband’s Samsung smart phone at it also worked.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and the free wallpaper! Make sure you try to make your own wallpaper too! Share it with us on Facebook or tagging @tombowusa on Instagram.
