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!
