  1. I love this leaf set. All I have are stamped images that are a lot of work when you try to add color and texture. Maybe you could give us some hints on how to use the stamped leaf images. I used chalk, but it covers up the veining and too easily becomes one muddy color when you try to shade.

  2. Bonnie - I think the key to not covering the stamped image detail is the ink you use as the colors you choose to deposit over that image. I have a StampersBest exclusive video where I flocked over a stamped image and the details are still clear below the flocking.
