Have several of these and find myself going back for more colors so that I can do more shading. The size is perfect for edging your papers with the chalk or other media on your project. And was pleasant to find that these have lots of ink. You do get a light blue if you use a small amount of pressure, or you can get a darker shade if you use more pressure. I also find myself grabbing one of these instead of my larger ink pads for smaller stamping projects. Can't go wrong with these.
I love these little chalk ink pads! This pad from the spring pastels is a lovely robin's egg blue rather than the more sky-blue shade I expected from the picture, but it's still a wonderful color that fills a gap in my ink collection.
