This is a natural green. Not the primary Mowed Lawn, or the dark green Pine Needles, or the olive army Forest Moss. I think it goes mentally with the olive in a martini but not as… preserved. I would say it is a medium dark shade closest to Forest Moss but not the same shade. Peeled Paint is a warm green without being yellow.
Crushed Olive is a lighter and brighter version of Peeled Paint. They go together perfectly. Together they would make any leafy situation seem vibrant and full of life.
If you're looking for the perfect green this might be it. I would choose Peeled Paint over Forest Moss because it's a bit brighter and cooler.
I am relatively new to the distress ink bandwagon, but I do like them quite a bit. Peeled paint is a great color. I debated between getting peeled paint and shabby shutters and I chose peeled paint because it did not look as bright. I have no regrets -- it is a lovely green color (the color online is pretty true to its actual color).
A friend recommended this line of distress inks. I had never used them before, but found that I mostly leaned towards paper that had that look to it. She explained what to do, and I could hardly wait to get home and crack them open. This particular color has become my favorite, it adds a really nice edge and can even make that cracked old photograph look if you use it all over the paper. It's really easy to work with, and if I was a little more careful I could easily keep from getting onto my fingers. All of Tim Holtz's colors are so unique. I highly recommend this line to anyone, new or pro!
I used this at a card class i attend, I used it to make a book mard and 2 cards and its such a brilliant colour. I'm just starting to learn to use this line of inks and I cant wait to get my hands on more ideas for them.
