I have to say that I probably use this ink on EVERY one of my layouts. It was a must have when it first came out and is a staple in my scrap supplies. If I don't have it with me at a crop, I will buy a new one because I use it that much. It is a mid range brown that has a tinge of yellow to it. I use it to distress the edges of almost everything I do. A definate must have ink in your collection.
This was the first one I got and it is my favorite! I probably use this more than any other color out there! (Of course, I do only have 3 so far...) It is so versitile - you can go light or darker, it works great on pictures, makes a great stamp color. If you're looking to buy into the distress ink line, this or black soot should be your first purchases! Happy scrapping!
Love, Love, Love Tim Holtz's Distress Ink line. The Vintage Photo is my favorite. I find myself grabbing it for almost every LO. It is great for inking distressed edges, photos, handmade flowers, for making your own unique papers and cutouts. If you are going to by just one of these inks-pick Vintage Photo. You can't go wrong with it!
