Default Ink issue

I am trying to use the SU Vanilla and gosh am I having trouble with it.....it is the craft ink and it is new........can't seem to get an even stamped image with it....

Is there another color I can use for the base of the embossed image that would stand out on green cardstock ( I do not have any other white or cream colors).........

I really want to try this technique.............thanks

All I can suggest is to just experiment with lighter shades of green within the same color family.

Sometimes with the Vanilla pad the ink sort of settles so you might try smooshing the pad with the back of a plastic spoon to distribute the ink and try stamping again. Although I've never gotten a real bright look with the Vanilla on darker cardstock.

Question I must be missing something in the instructions

On step 2, you say to stamp the image again on your sheet. What sheet? To me the picture looks like a piece of acetate. Thanks!
