Greens are a little tricky. The lid pictured here is not the color of the stamped ink. Instead Forest Moss is an old fashioned, world wars, olive army green. Darker and oh-so-slightly yellower then the primary green of Mowed Lawn. Personally I find Forest Moss to be more of a pine green -- not a stereotype Christmas green -- but a real grows-in-the-forest, pine trees overhead in the sunlight, color. I picked up Forest Moss to go with Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs which make wild, dark blended backgrounds. Otherwise I use Forest Moss for leaves of all kinds when I don't want the usual bright greens and am reaching for a more nature effect. You can stamp the stem and leaf of a pumpkin in Mowed Lawn or Pine Needles just fine, but Forest Moss is more natural looking. Thanksgiving themes are better served with non-Halloween colors as well say Rusty Hinge, Forest Moss and Vintage Photo, even Fired Brick. Bright are not for everything. In my opinion, of course. Forest Moss is a good buy but only if you're looking for a dark, warmer green.
