tea dye is the one I use most, but i also use Vintage Photo. I have Broken China, Marmalade-and quite a few others that I use mostly when stamping and card making. I love 'em.

OMG I love TH distress pads!!
The colors are soooo beautiful and they blend so easy with the blending tool!

I have the Tea Dye but have yet to use it on an LO, I keep my foams in baggies with the color blended on a white sticker outside of the bag. That way they are seperate from the other used ones and easy to get! Thats the only time Ive used that color. (talk about particular) lol

Anyway...My FAVS are Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord(beautiful purple), and Broken China! I tested my Spiced Marmalade on a piece of scrap paper, thats a vivid color, I am sure will look very pretty on an LO combined with the Walnut Stain.

So yeah, lol I wrote a novel but there you go a few of my favs! I have a bunch...and those are by far my favs.

Although I own just about all of them, I continually reach for Vintage Photo - it appears on every LO I've ever done!!! lol

I've got almost all of them, but my faves would have to be all of the browns, blue jean, and peeled paint.

Broken China and Tattered Rose are two great colors, peeled paint is the most awesome dark olive green color - wow! I would say that I do use Antique Linen, Old Paper and Vintage photo the most! Fired Brick is such a great red too - looks great w/Faded Jeans Color - Oh they are all great!!!

I didnt have the blending tool for a while...I'd use the direct pad to paper technique but once i got my blending tool, oh my god I dont know how I ever made due with out!

Its awesome! It blends so easily and evrything looks smooth! Especially when you are trying to blend 2 or 3 colors together in the small area.
I HIGHLY recommend you get it! Also buy a pack of foams if you have several ink pads!=)

The blending tool is fantastic and I also recommend daubers, they are great for doing the edges of mats, flowers etc - and last a long time!
