I use this stamp pad most often for aging and distressing full sheets of cardstock or cardstock edges. When I tear paper I love how this ink looks on the torn edges (they become darker). All of the Tim Holtz Distress Inks help take your scrapbooking to a more artist, interesting and creative level.

This ink pad is so versatile! I keep using it over and over again. The color is awesome and it's great for inking the edges of paper, photos, or for stamping. It gives great results for stamping! This is one I reach for on many, many LOs and cards. I have used it so much and it is still like new! I love it!

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!!!

I have had distress inks for a few years but didn't use them until I watched the Tim Holtz video. Now I am hooked and have added to my color collection. Fun - fun - fun!
As I mentioned before love all Tim Holtz distress inks! can't go wrong with these in my opinion....they add just that special touch! :-)
I love these inks and the shipping from scrapbook.com is so fast. I will always buy from them.
One of my favorites for giving an old look to paper, journaling spots, etc.
The Distress pads are great - I like what they do because they do faux so well. However, the Old Paper ink is a bit on the green side when applied to white papers. If your paper is dyed through with a color then you get that older look without resorting to a brown or black ink.
Distress inks are a crafter staple.
...it is a shade of light green and not dark cream as it seems in the photo. If this sounds OK, then you will love it. I already have Bandled Sage and I think they are very similar. If I knew, I would buy Antique Linen instead. Great quality as always.
All of the distress inks are great - but this color is unique. It surprised me a little when it had a greenish tinge to it - but that is exactly what makes it look just like old paper. Give this one a try!

I bought the Old Paper pad first as I had heard raves about Tim Holtz products. Wow! This works so much different from chalk pads, much better. I love the way you can press harder or lighter while making streaks across your paper/edges for a real aged look. I have since bought more colors, and the refill bottles. What great products!
I just love all the distress inks I own them all. they are just perfect for just about everthing there is so many awesome things you can do with these ink pads. a must have for any scrapper i think
I love all the colors of the Tim Holtz DISTRESS ink pads, some more than others, still have to get the hang of em, since its my first time using Tim Holtz products.
This stamp pad is such a fantastic color. It looks like a water mark when you stamp it.
