Hammered flower and leaf prints

Leaves and a hammer. Oh my gosh...love this.

Actually, you'll need a little more than just a hammer.

Here's a supply list:
flowers or leaves to print
watercolor or other rough, acid-free paper
selection of hammers (including ball-peen or cross-peen, if possible)
hard work surface (cutting board, slab of wood, etc.)
paper towels
tweezers or toothpicks
acrylic finishing spray (optional)

This is easy and looks like a lot of fun!
