After my sister showed me Tim Holtz's videos using distress ink...I just had to give it a try. I purchased several colors in addition to the sage...chipped sapphire (I haven't used it yet), scattered straw and broken china. I have had such a fun time making (I did have a little learning curve) tags. Love Distress Ink! I do need a blending tool. I also bought mini misters - a must to play with this stuff!
Just got the new Bundled Sage and must say I absolutely love this shade of green. It's beautiful and so versatile. I love the fact that I can get more than just one shade from this. I can go light, medium or dark. What's not to love about any of the Distress Ink Pads. Always an absolute fave!

My crafting took on a new look with Tim Holtz distress inks. I love them all.
If you have not tried them, all I can say is your missing out on a whole new level of stamping and beyond!
If you know the herb sage you know it has a bit of grayish to it because of fine hairs on the leaves. Surprisingly this ink pad captures that cool color really well. I have 9 different greens in the Distress Ink Pad line and this is the most organic and natural looking. (The very different Forest Moss is second).
Bundled Sage is a medium color, not pastel in any way but not in-your-face saturated either. A good color for leaves, herb bundles, a sophisticated alternative to mint green (ick.!), better then Iced Spruce for a vintage feelů a nice comfortable alternative to the more saturated greens in the Distressed line.
I'm not fond of Shabby Shutters after buying this ink pad. Shabby Shutters is more yellow but not a spring green. Bundled Sage is a better buy.
Interesting note: Bundled Sage goes really well with Old Paper (which is green not tan). Old Paper is pastel version.
