I hemmed and hawed about this pad for awhile. When it went on sale and snapped it up and I'm so glad I did. This is the nicest brown. Tea dye has been a staple forever -- I love the rusty tones. Gathered twigs could not be more different. This one is a lovely earthy comfortable medium brown. I find I use it for an entirely different kind of color "feel". It does not go with as many of the other Distress pad colors so that may matter to you.
I use a lot of this ink I am glad to see a new color and It really is a good choice for nature works, I do a lot of sponge painting and TH inks are perfect for that
Love this color! Fits right in with my vintage themed projects. After hearing that this color is only available for a limited time I bought two.
