This is a bit of an unusual color. The photo here is way way too yellow. Shabby Shutters is mintier, tiny bit sage, and a bit old fashioned. I'm guessing people are investing in it for certain color matches or to be used for things like leaves with pastel flowers. It's much too light to be a usual floral green and certainly not a spring green. I invested in Shabby Shutters as a blended background color -- it antiques very well with Tea Dye, and I happen to like it with Spiced Marmalade. This would not be a first buy or a casual buy as far as I'm concerned. The color is a little too unusual.
This ink works well for any need. It comes out close to a lime green on white paper and the color on the lid matches exactly with the color on paper.

I love all of the Distress Inks and use them a lot especially to ink the edges of my pages and elements on my pages. This is a great shade of green. They add an extra layer of color.
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!!!
