I typically am drawn to lighter or brighter colors. Being new to Distress Inks (I know, can you believe it?) I bought this one to go with the lighter pink ones I bought. When I used it, I was amazed at the depth it gave my work. I now plan to buy all of the dark colors too.
If you have not tried the distress inks, you need to give them a try.There are a lot of web vides available to teach you how to use them.
I would recommed the blending tool, for it allows you to work with the inks at diffrent levels (deep or light) I definitely gives the look I have been looking for that I was not achieving with paints. They are my new favorite thing. Can't wait to learn more about them.
This is a wonderful color of red -- I'm partial to reds so I really like it! It's redder than mahogany, I think, and it another one of my favorite colors of Tim's Distress Ink Pads!
