You'll be a big fan of the Scattered Straw Distress Ink Pad by Tim Holtz. This ink is ideal for adding a vintage essence to your projects. You will love the weathered look on your altered art projects. Included is one 2" x 2" quality raised-felt stamp pad that is acid-free, non-toxic, fade-resistant, and water-based.
Scattered straw was my most recent distress ink purchase. I wanted some sort of yellowy color that was warm and muted and this is definately the one. It is a great color that blends well and works with almost anything.

Even if you go to real world straw this ink is not dead grass of any type. Nor is is a shade of the photo shown here.
That said, Scattered Straw is a complex color. It most closely sits next to Wild Honey. It has the same orange tone but absolutely none of the brilliance. Wild Honey almost glows because it has elements of bright bright yellow in it. Scattered Straw is much more laid back, a medium tone that seems ultra flat in comparison.
What's most interesting about Scattered Straw is it almost is a stereotypic skin tone. It's a bit orange but I think it would work for that purpose… if you don't want the typical pink pastel color.
