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!

This ink pad gives you that aged look. I love the color of this ink pad. I use this pad all the time for that aged look. It is a great color for almost any project. If you don't have any of these types of ink pads get this one. This was my first Distress Ink and I have only a few, but this is the one I use all the time.

I am new to scrapbooking and this is one of my favorite products. Everything looks better and more polished with a little bit of ink around the edges...so easy and such a great touch to add depth and dimension. The Vintage Photo color is perfect! It's like a little bit of chocolate heaven without the calories!!

Vintage Photo is great for getting that distressed aged look you want for your layouts. All of the Tim Holtz inks are fabulous, but this has to be my favorite color. Use it for edging or distressing your paper. I've love to use it with my scroll clear stamps too. Highly recommend!

I love love love vintage photo. I think that it is the perfect color to distress edges of, well, everything! It is a great brown color and I find that I use it a lot more than I use any other color. It also pairs well with tea die for a lighter brown/darker brown contrast look.

Loved this color! Previous attempts to ink the paper edges did not turn out very well with colors and inks that I had. Decided to try this color - liked the name - inked my paper edge and wow!! Page looked fantastic and aged and just what I was looking for.
He did it again with this amazingly rich color! The pad is perfect for both stamping, as well as distressing paper edges. Its so easy to use and always saturates with just the right amount of ink. A perfect way to add that vintage look to any project!
I must say I use this ink pad the most out of all my inks. This is my favorite scrap product out of everything I have. It just adds a special detail to all my layouts. I will deff recomend this to all the scrappers.

So much fun to use ... can totally change the look of any paper, sticker, etc. I've read it can be used on photos themselves, but I haven't tried that yet ... Just love this stuff!

I used this product recently to edge an accent - It worked just like I wanted it to and really did give that "vintage" look. I look forward to trying some of the other inks.
It offers a nice look when applied to the edge of any paper... have fun with it!! I recommend it for those who don't know which Distress Ink to use first. It's THIS ONE!!
