Designer Tip: Rub a green Distress ink pad on a craft sheet several times. Place a small amount of Translucent Embossing Paste in the ink. Mix the color into the ink with a Palette Knife. Make three separate colors of paste with green inks, creating dark, medium, and light colors. Take a small amount of each color on the knife and spread a thin layer on a 12”x2”” white cardstock. Ink the leaf stamp with Mowed Lawn and press into the wet paste several times, wiping the stamp off each time. Wash the stamp, and let the paste dry. Cut ½” of one long end.
