Use the Shabby Shutters Distress Ink Pad by Tim Holtz for Ranger Ink to get a vintage look and feel without the mess of tea stain or walnut ink. This water-based dye ink adds stained or aged effects to photos, fibers and papers. The 2" x 2" raised felt stamp pad is non-toxic, acid-free and fade-resistant.
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.

Great Ink! Used it in the background of hand stitched grass, it added so much depth to it!
you cannot make a mistake with this ink. This shade of green goes with everything.
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.
The Distress Ink Pad Shabby Shutters was needed to add to ink pads to use in journals and coloring books.

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 all of the Tim holtz distressing inks that I have tried. I use them on almost every page that I do. They seem to add another layer to the page.
