Distress Inks are my favorite inks to work without. I have been a fan for years but after learning a few new techniques recently I am hooked even more. So much more that I needed to complete my collection. With this purchase I now have all 36 colors- I still need a few of the reinkers though. Tim has a lot of browns in this line but they are different and almost every project looks better with a little brown added to the edges. I love that the variety of browns keeps my projects from getting boring and keeps me from getting bored. I love the properties o Distress when water is added. Makes them unique.
I love the color of the Brushed Corduroy stamp. I've used it on my family tree album and it was exactly the color I needed for that. I used it with clear stamps and it comes off of the clear stamp evenly and the clean up is very easy. I also used it to distress paper that I used as an embellishment. It's a great ink and I plan on getting more of this color and trying some of the others in the future.

Well, I could write a review for every tim holtz ink in the superstore... but i'll just put one big one here for all of them. This is an amazing line of inks! Great for direct to paper application or for sponge application for a softer effect. Great colors and a wide array at that. I can't think of one bad thing to say about these inks and all I can think so say is that i love love love them!
I know everyone has a favorite brown ink. This one is mine. I love that it's not dark and heavy, but it's a nice clean and crisp brown that adds just the most subtle of shade to the edge of a project. It's perfect for my vintage and shabby chic style layouts.
I hope this color stays in stock forever. Or at least for the next 30 years. After that, I'll be too old to care. ;-)
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 love Distress Ink pads-and Brushed Corduroy is probably tops on the list for me! It is a great neutral to have on hand and the color is fantastic for achieving that vintage look-highly recommend adding this to your ink collection!

I love this brand of distressing ink. I use this color on just about everything.
The pad is nice and juicy and you can always get ink to remoisten. I think its great and you can just stack them up to store.

This is my go to brown ink. I love the color that it gives to any project. It is great for stamping and inking. It looks great both with and without the ink blending tool.

While brushed corduroy is very close to gathered twigs it does have a different color. Brushed corduroy has a creamier base so it's softer and more mellow (but not pastel). It is also a tinge more yellow. If you are a Distress brown fan then this one has to be in there. As I use more of these ink pads to alter scrapbook and found papers I find that I like having a choice of browns to work with. For beginner I still say tea dye because it does on a bit more transparent and has a more stereotypic vintage effect.
Ranger ink pads are have beautiful strong colors. They are very fun to use. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the center of the pads might be drier than the outside. I live in a dry climate though so it probably effects the pads.
I love the distress inks, although I only have a few. this is probably my favorite because it's such a rich color without being dark. It's kind of a rich light mahogany that is beautiful. Love it!
