Scattered straw was my most recent distress ink purchase. I wanted some sort of yellowy color that was warm and muted and this is definately the one. It is a great color that blends well and works with almost anything.

This color is great. I don't like the dark distressed ink pads. I've used this frequently with many other colors of distressed ink. It goes well with all of the different colors.
This is a very unique color. I primarily use this color for blending, and it works very well. I love using all the Distress Inks and find them all very easy to use.

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!!!
Even if you go to real world straw this ink is not dead grass of any type. Nor is is a shade of the photo shown here.
That said, Scattered Straw is a complex color. It most closely sits next to Wild Honey. It has the same orange tone but absolutely none of the brilliance. Wild Honey almost glows because it has elements of bright bright yellow in it. Scattered Straw is much more laid back, a medium tone that seems ultra flat in comparison.
What's most interesting about Scattered Straw is it almost is a stereotypic skin tone. It's a bit orange but I think it would work for that purpose… if you don't want the typical pink pastel color.
