A friend recommended this line of distress inks. I had never used them before, but found that I mostly leaned towards paper that had that look to it. She explained what to do, and I could hardly wait to get home and crack them open. This particular color has become my favorite, it adds a really nice edge and can even make that cracked old photograph look if you use it all over the paper. It's really easy to work with, and if I was a little more careful I could easily keep from getting onto my fingers. All of Tim Holtz's colors are so unique. I highly recommend this line to anyone, new or pro!
I am relatively new to the distress ink bandwagon, but I do like them quite a bit. Peeled paint is a great color. I debated between getting peeled paint and shabby shutters and I chose peeled paint because it did not look as bright. I have no regrets -- it is a lovely green color (the color online is pretty true to its actual color).
This inks are the best! They come in a lot of colors and they're perfect for inking paper. One of the things I love the best too is that if you use this ink on a rubber/clear stamp you get this really great aged look. i just LOVE these!!!
