3.Apply Lettuce ink to cosmetic sponge wedge and with firm pressure add ink to area that is masked off. With same sponge blend Bottle ink over parts of the Lettuce ink in a downward motion. Add shading to edge where mask is with Eggplant ink on a new sponge.

4.Remove mask. Rip another stickie note mask and position it below the first area changing the angle of the mask. Apply Bottle ink to this area varying the amount of ink.
