This ink pad fits right next to Dusty Concord just with different saturation. I rarely go for pastel anything… too prissy and fussy for me. But using the blending tool really works great with a base color that is really light. Milled Lavender goes with Tumbled Glass and a smudge of Victorian Velvet. But it's much more fun with medium blues like Stormy Sky or dark like Chipped Sapphire. I've got a lot of stamp pads and this is nice to round out my collection. If you are a more traditional stamper Milled Lavender would be a great pastel for flowers, girly stuff, and anything that isn't quite boy or girl (blue and pink make purple).
It is a great light color for distressing and has turned me into a lover of Distress Ink. I spend lots of time trying to think of different ways to use this ink and would totally recommend any who hasn't tried it to buy one and give it a shot.
