I love color and I love Distress ink pads. But this one is a little weird. First it isn't anything persimmon but that's just marketing. Basically it's an orange red and not a typical one. As far as I can tell it was developed to go with specific colors instead of a range like all the others. I've found that it just looks odd when I stamp or use the Ranger tool. I did not rate it lower because I think there are uses for an orange red. It's just not one for me.
All Distress ink is terrific. I do not have the newest Distress inks that just came out so I am not reviewing those but, since Tim Holtz's Distress inks are very good ink, the newest are probably just as good. They last a long time, the pigment is rich and can be used on most types of card stock. I love them.
Thank you Tim Holtz...you've done it again! The colour is very rich-lovely for a sunset. Will be great for fall cards! I ordered the marker as soon as I saw the colour!
