Personally I love the Distress Inks. I think i have 15. I learned to use them by watching Tim Holtz on You Tube. Love the colors and I love the way they blend. A real treat.
I love color and I love Distress ink pads. But this one is a little weird. First it isn't anything persimmon but that's just marketing. Basically it's an orange red and not a typical one. As far as I can tell it was developed to go with specific colors instead of a range like all the others. I've found that it just looks odd when I stamp or use the Ranger tool. I did not rate it lower because I think there are uses for an orange red. It's just not one for me.
